The definition of faith is often referenced to Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” This brilliant definition is common to many of us… but it does not make it a slam-dunk event in reality. Much pressing in and wondering and worrying can accompany our attempts at faith.
I have often wondered about faith days I read about from others in history (including the rest of the chapter in Hebrews 11). For example I recently came across this:
“I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining. I believe in love even if I am alone. I believe in God even when he is silent.”
(Quote found scratched on a wall inside a Nazi Concentration Camp cell during World War II.)
Faith days mean many things to different people.
“ I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail.” Jesus
