My faith is less a conviction, grasped tightly
And more the whisper of grace resting lightly on my open palm.
It is not something I accomplish or hold on to;
It is a sweet gift continually opening itself in my heart.
My heart is opened in return.
It is not so much ‘my’ faith
As it is your assurance deep within me,
Singing a lullaby of love
That bids me rest my soul in you.
And when I do,
Flows beyond the boundaries of my being
Into my small corner of the world.
I have faith in you
(when I am within you).
You have faith in me.
(You placed it there.
It will not be contained.)
