Perfecting Faith

I feel as if we have met 

the saturation point, no one 

more thing can be added, 

no grief, no illness, no tragedy,

no protest, no shortage —

we have reached the point 

of not being able to hold 

one more hard thing, 

but this is life — 

death and calamity 

and everyday difficulties 

are part of our day 

to day, so we must move 

on to the next very hard thing 

with integrity, giving out grace, 

leaning on mercy, standing 

firm upon the love 

that carries everything; 

We do this by keeping 

our eyes on Jesus, 

the champion who initiates 

and perfects our faith. 

Because of the joy awaiting 

Him, He endured the cross, 

disregarding its shame. 

Now He is seated in the place 

of honor beside God’s throne.” 

The Light of the world waiting 

to bring us home.
