With faith all things are possible

Faith is taking that next step even though I can’t see it

Faith is knowing I am on the right path

Even if it’s a path I would not have chosen

Faith is knowing there is still good in this world

And it’s worth fighting for

Faith is the belief there is a reason for everything

Even if the reason is never known

I have never spent much time in church

But I have always had faith there is a God

I have faith there is a higher power

But I don’t need pews and steeples to believe

The great outdoors is my church

The trees are my walls

The clear blue sky is my ceiling

My floor is covered in pine needles and leaves

Fallen trees are my pews

Songs of the birds are my choir

The peace that surrounds me is the sermon

Faith is feeling God’s hand on my shoulder

Gently guiding me

Faith is believing in the power of prayer

And both answered and unanswered prayers

Faith is relinquishing control

And knowing everything will be okay

Faith is the essence of all things
