Faith is

After 2 Corinthians 6:3-13

It’s not a warm electric blanket
she said it’s the cross
it’s troubles and hardships,
he said it’s beatings and prison,
it’s insults and taunts
it’s watching your reputation
trashed it’s being considered
an imposter it’s being dishonored
and lied about it’s sorrow
and poverty it’s ridicule
it’s having nothing it’s also

glory and encouragement it’s
protection and endurance it’s
understanding and purity it’s
kindness and patience it’s
rejoicing and righteousness it’s
possessing everything

it’s life the only way life
makes sense it’s rebirth
it’s salvation it’s the rock

Powerful message. Yes, Faith is all of that...and more. Looking forward to reading your books. I ordered them from Amazon this week with a gift card I had! (I am a friend of Martha Jane Orlando...and she did a book review of them). God bless you and keep you! Have a blessed day!
