Hanging next to the picture window in the living room was an old picture, painted on glass. Two trees stood alone and forlorn at the edge of a wood.
The view outside the window held hundreds of trees. Some tall, some short. Maples. Oak trees. Walnut trees, and others.
I sat in a chair facing that window one dreary, rainy day when I was a child. I looked at the picture and then out the window.
The two trees in the picture. The woods through the window.
Only two trees. Then many.
That was when I noticed the words on the picture. “Have faith in God,” it said.
Some dreary, rainy days, I remember that day.
I remember a picture with two lonely trees and the words, Have Faith in God. I remember the picture outside that same window, an entire woodland of trees.
I remember that Faith produces results. Faith brings power. Faith grows trees – and me.
How about it, friend? How is your faith?
