90 Day Challegenge: Day 24 – Faithfulness

“But the Lord said: ‘If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you may say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted, and be transplanted into the sea.” And it would obey you.’” (Luke 17:6)

My faith ebbs and flows

Like the ocean

Sometimes 

It is high and deep

Covering the beach

In its fullness

So water is all that is seen

And to wade in it

Would mean immersing oneself 

And daring the current

To take you

Sometimes

It is shallow

Leaving sand

Exposed to sun

Drying out everything

That lives and moves

Leaving the stench

Of all that has died 

Like limp kelp

Draped over driftwood

Bleached like bare bones

Sometimes

It is neither

Shallow nor deep

But playful

Covering the ankles

Then racing away

To leave them exposed

And waiting

For the next surge

With expectant hope

That the sand that clings

Between toes

Like dirt on the soul

Will be washed away again

And you will be cleansed

My faith ebbs and flows

Like the ocean

Sometimes deeply

Sometimes in shallows

Sometimes like water rushing up

Only to rush away again

My faith ebbs and flows

My faith ebbs and flows

And with it my life

In the Lord
