Taking a Leap of Faith

A Leap of Faith
Everyday my faith is challenged,
Every day my logic is avenged.
Daily struck by pseudoscience
Upon which there’s no reliance.
All around me I believe in that
Which I candidly can not combat.
Sonic waves fly through the air,
Can’t see ‘em but know they’re there,
Electricity running through the wire,
Gas, unseen creates a warming fire.
I believe in the ability of fellowmen,
When on the highway now and then,
Trusting they will stay in their lane,
Driving reliably and always quite sane.
Yet when it comes to believing in God,
Invincible data is the measuring rod.
Demand the proof and clear evidence!
Don’t accept hope or mere acquiescence!
Proof must be solid and indisputable!
Grasping faith, now that takes a miracle.

The things which are not seen." --2 Corinthians 4:18
Every day we place our faith in something. The bus or the train will arrive on time, taking us to our job. The chef at the restaurant taking all the sanitary precautions before preparing our food. The bank that we are entrusting our money with is reliable and incorruptible.
We engage ourselves in a daily parade of perceptive trust. However, when it comes to the great Creator of the universe, we demand concrete assurance of His existence.
The sun rising in the morning at just the right distance from our planet, so as not to reduce us to toast is not sufficient. The moon in a celestial sky is not only beautiful, but also germane to our survival as a planet. The moon regulates our tides, without which we would find ourselves in a soggy situation.
Didn’t you awake this morning able to breathe in life sustaining air? Here is an even better example, have you ever held a newborn child in your arms. How then is it possible to question the existence of God?
Dear heart, if you question or doubt or ponder His existence that is good. He has miraculously planted those seeds so that they may be watered by His word. His word will appease all of your concerns, questions, and pondering. Take it on faith that He will supply all of your needs according to His perfect plan for you. Open the book and read what He says, listen with your heart and see where your perception leads you. Take that leap of faith!
