Cloak of faith.

by royowen

This cloak of faith I wrap around,
to know its touch, its voice, its sound.
For faith is like a butterfly,
or like a mist, a silent cry.

It may endure for just a day,
then as one sleeps it fades away.
One's faith today will not remain,
it's like a shadow, time's disdain.

Or like a lamp that has no oil,
a pasture bare a drought may spoil.
With prayer and trust, a humble heart,
draw close to God with Him be part.

For God has said one must have faith,
to overcome doubt's evil wraith.
Yet this I know, one's faith's a gift,
that lights the dark, a mountain shift.

As mustard seeds are small in size,
as faith's a dream, it births its prize.
I will not move while doubt remains,
I'll spread faith's seed, its small bright grains.

I think that faith is such a fascinating subject, to the logical mind it does not make sense, and yet without it, one would be reluctant to rise from bed, everybody needs faith, just to simply take the next step, it works hand in glove with hope, that the sun will rise tomorrow. Without it, scientists would not be bothered in proceeding in their quest to discover new cures or new designs and more efficient methods of transportation, power to feed the grids. But for the believer, it is essential to believe in an invisible realm of substance.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. NKJV.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. KJV

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. KJV
