I asked Ellie Walker what faith is; she replied “proactive hope.”
Crossing sand dunes hoping for an oasis.
Studying hoping to learn.
Going to the doctor hoping for a cure.
Attending scool hoping for better employment.
Speaking hoping the other person is listening.
Starting a family hoping it will be a happy one.
Kneeling in prayer hoping that God is listening and cares.
Forsaking sin hoping for a changed heart.
Living hoping God can fix mortal errors.
Faith is proactive hope.
