Renewing our joy in the journey
springs from knowing all is well—not because
we say or sing so, but because God has made it so: faith
being a finished work on the cross of Christ,
a shining shard, jewel
in his eternal crown.
This poem appears in my upcoming book on Faith’s Journey, featuring poems on the path that leads us to the foot of Christ’s cross, to lay down what worries us, holds us back from looking up, receiving all that God has in store for those who love, who worship him in spirit and in truth–faith being a foretaste of heaven’s crown.
