Have a Little Faith

This month is my last and final song blog, at least, for now. If you read my last two posts, you’ll know the movie and song “I Can Only Imagine” inspired me to attempt this genre of writing. I am definitely not Mercy Me, but what I loved about the movie was the general theme of: “Don’t quit. Have a little faith and write from your heart. Write what matters and then you’ll have a hit.” I am not necessarily trying for a hit, but what I am trying for is to write about what matters.  The beauty of these past few months for me was praying and letting God speak through me with small poems and phrases to talk through what matters; which is Hope, Believing, and Faith. For the first song – we discussed this crazy world, but in the same  sense how we all have a purpose and how we can still have hope. The next month we discussed believing in God’s love journey. For me, I dedicated this second song to my daughter. This month we’ll discuss how having a little Faith (even as tiny as a mustard seed), can be what you’re missing in your life. To be honest, I believe there are many people out there just like me who have wondered, at times, where is God? Does God care? Why do I have to struggle?  What is my purpose? My hope is this song will remind you that maybe all you need is Faith to make it through one more day and one more hardship. My other hope is I’ll find a singer who can actually turn these songs into music…lol! God gave me the gift of making words come to life, but not the gift of singing like angels. So if you are a singer who would like to make these songs into music, please let me know. I could use all the faith I can get.

 

Have a Little Faith

 

The story begins with Adam and Eve

Who one day decided to not believe

Why did they have faith in a sneaky snake

Who avoided the truth – for heaven’s sake?

 

Of course others doubted the sacred lamb

Others such as Thomas, Gideon, Sarah, and Abraham

Why did they not have Faith in what is true

A very good question for me and for you

 

If Manna suddenly fell from the sky

David answered the battle cry

The red sea parted completely in half

Would you build a golden calf?

 

Is Faith something you carry with pride?

Or is it something you continuously hide?

Do you have Faith or do you doubt?

Is your Faith a whisper or a shout

 

Is your Faith the size of a mountain or a mustard seed?

Is your Faith big enough for you to succeed?

Do you have the Faith of an innocent child?

Or is your Faith continuously running wild?

 

Freud and Curie never thought God was real

But what do you think – how do you feel

Is your Faith a sign of weakness or convenience

Is your Faith just pipe dreams and  lenience

 

Do you only have Faith when times are great

Or is your Faith because you fear heaven’s gate

Are you caught in a Faith vs.  self-will battle

Do you allow your Faith to ever be rattled

 

If Manna suddenly fell from the sky

David answered the battle cry

The red sea parted completely in half

Would you build a golden calf?

 

Is Faith something you carry with pride?

Or is it something you continuously hide?

Do you have Faith or do you doubt?

Is your Faith a whisper or a shout?

 

Faith is not always easy to behold

It is something you believe without being told

Faith is not something you can easily see

You have to have Faith without touching the deity

 

When Faith is difficult for you to find

Let me tell you something to keep in mind

Have a conversation with the one who knows

The one who knows you from your head to your toes

 

If Manna suddenly fell from the sky

David answered the battle cry

The red sea parted completely in half

Would you build a golden calf?

 

Is Faith something you carry with pride?

Or is it something you continuously hide?

Do you have Faith or do you doubt?

Is your Faith a whisper or a shout?

 

God is everywhere – the woods, a car, or in bed

It’s time to ask God into your soul and your head

Read his word, pray, and let him hear your voice

Find others whose Faith is an everyday choice

 

Keep Faith in your pocket when you want to quit

Remember your life stories where God is legit

Remember without God it is hard to cope

Only he can give you what is missing; which is hope

 

If Manna suddenly fell from the sky

David answered the battle cry

The red sea parted completely in half

Would you build a golden calf?

 

Is Faith something you carry with pride?

Or is it something you continuously hide?

Do you have Faith or do you doubt?

Is your Faith a whisper or a shout?

 

Is your Faith full of questions

Is your Faith demands and suggestions

With a little faith you can go far

It doesn’t matter who you are

 

This story ends with we all make mistakes

But with a little faith it’s something you can shake

Be Noah and the ark against all of the odds

For there is love where there is God

 

If Manna suddenly fell from the sky

David answered the battle cry

The red sea parted completely in half

Would you build a golden calf?

 

Is Faith something you carry with pride?

Or is it something you continuously hide?

Do you have Faith or do you doubt?

Is your Faith a whisper or a shout?
