As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

Hardcore Faith

"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

This sounds so "nice" and "pretty".
I don't need "nice" and "pretty" faith.

I need hardcore, withstand the onslaught faith,
the kind that keeps me solid when
I'm standing in front of an avalanche barreling at me,
knowing I can do nothing in my own power to stop it,
and trusting God is going to make it go around me in some way
--or dig me out safely--
because He said next week He has something for me to do.
