I remember that old saying,
“If you love someone, let them go. If they come back to you, they are truly yours.”
Or maybe the ending was, “…if they don’t come back to you, they were never truly yours.”
Does that apply, I wonder, to faith?
I have let my faith go so many times.
Always it returns.
Will it always?
Perhaps my hope lies in changing the subject (of the sentence).
Not it always returns.
But God always returns it.
Faith is the object of God’s sentence.
God the eternal, the unchangeable, the divine lover,
will always return my faith to me.
