And God gave me my “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” line. I was just praying during the homily and he instantly gave me the answer.
I’ve already written 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13 here, So here’s a poem about faith and hope that I stumbled upon a few days ago.
Faith begins by believing in your heart that what is right has a chance.
Faith is knowing in your heart that good can overcome evil, that the sun can shine in a rainstorm.
Faith is peaceful and comforting, because it comes from within where no one can invade your private dreams.
Faith is not something you can demand or command; it is a result of commitment to belief.
Faith is believing in something you can’t see or hear, something deep inside that only you understand
Faith is trusting in yourself enough to know that no matter how things turn out, you will make the best of them.
Hope is not the closing of your eyes to the difficulty, the risk, or the failure.
It is a trust that If I fail now, I shall not fail forever; and if I am hurt, I shall be healed.
It is a trust that life is good, love is powerful, and the future is full of promise.
