Just a quick post today, about faith.
There was once upon a time when I was cold-called in college by one of those college christian group guys just asking if I wanted to join and if I had any questions. I had heard about being sucked in to one of those groups, and I was a little wary, since I pretty much knew nothing at the time. I figured, ok, he called, let’s ask a question, and I asked “What is faith?” After some stammering and me nodding along in my dorm room, I figured he didn’t really have an answer and I politely told him I wasn’t interested and then hung up. That was that.
Years later, I look back on those 5 minutes and think maybe I was just a bit unforgiving. I mean, it’s a big question, and he was just some guy in college, like me. And cold-calling stinks. Maybe I should have been a bit nicer. Could I even answer the question if someone asked me? I can say that I’ve experienced the power of having faith, and the security that comes with it, but could I give a succinct answer without going into my life story?
Then, one of my friends, Kirsten from One Tough Mother, shared this quote with me one day, and it kinda stuck with me. This is it. This is a quote that made me think and look back on my own experiences and realize, yup, this is exactly it. Faith is unseen, but more than that, and it’s packaged all nicely right here in one little line, thanks to Oswald Chambers. If you like it too, feel free to print it out!
(I’d prefer you not print it out, pop it in a frame, and then sell it for $20, but I can’t exactly stop you, so that’s my disclaimer.)
