FEARFUL FIRST STEPS
We base all our vital decisions
futures, families and employment
when in fact they represent realities
hidden futures we cannot foresee
Choosing Faith we are hesitant- uncertain
where are we going- what lies ahead?
barely understanding our first cautious steps
people linger and wait anticipating our fall
Are you afraid to live by Faith?
well--welcome to the club
be bold, forsaking nearsightedness
fearful first steps of Faith will bring accomplishment
“We live by Faith, not by sight”--2 Corinthians 5:7
