A faithful person
sees life from the perspective of trust,
Bedrock faith allows me to believe that,
despite the chaos of the present moment,
God does reign;
that regardless of how worthless I may feel,
I truly matter to a God of love;
that no pain lasts forever
and no evil triumphs in the end.
Faith sees even the darkest deed of all history,
the death of God's Son,
as a necessary prelude to the brightest.
A very happy Easter to all of you!
