FAITH in Manchester

Trying to find faith in something good can be hard,  certain people, even most people may struggle to find something to believe in.  A drug addict may find solace in a quick fix.  An alcoholic can discover peace in a strong drink.  A heavy smoker goes into a trance with a deep drag on a cigarette.  Other vices can give people faith in things deemed bad or not good for health or personality.  At least they have faith in something. 


To find faith in a god can feel bad sometimes.  The struggle to see something you cannot see.  A thing others say are there.  A great being that seeks us out.  Watches over us.  A god that sends things and people to tell us it is here.  All the time.  How do we know it is here or there?  The test is the hardest thing of all.  To find a reason for a god.  Thee God.  Yet when something happens.  A child born.  A sick person cured.  A gentle breeze in pretty hills and plains.  And your heart attaches itself to something.  A faith in a thing of wonder.


Then you can let your faith grow.  In the wonder of life.  Of love.  In a god that reveals the truth.  Find the faith.  Keep the faith.  Even through rocky times.  Then maybe life, love and reason shall be found.  In a loving God or a magical Wonder.  Called Faith.  Amen.
