Believe

To believe is to suspend rational thought.
Mystery becomes foundational;
the unseen, a reality.
Belief is not for the faint-hearted.
Doubt lurks in the background,
prowling, laughing, unsettling.
Belief requires courage –
persistent tenaciousness,
determination.
Failure, crisis, tragedy,
criticism, judgement:
all can shake belief.
Belief demands strength of character,
the security of self-knowledge,
an eagerness to break barriers.
Belief stretches one’s mind into the unknown,
freeing the spirit and soul.
Belief brings you face-to-face with God,
seeing without eyes,
touching without hands,
hearing without ears,
knowing without facts.
