Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see. — William Newton Clarke
I recently purchased some notecards specifically because of this quote. The cards were beautiful and I loved the sentiment. The card company is Punch Card Studio. They have some spectacularly beautiful cards. And I have to admit I am a sucker for note cards. Nothing is more special than sending one to someone you care about.
I believe this is so true. Without faith I couldn’t have continued on this journey. I had to dare myself to go further than I could see because I could not see myself beyond the current pain, hopelessness, loneliness, and isolation. I had to dare myself to put one step in front of the other when I just wanted to sit in a corner and disappear. I know many of you out there are struggling as well. Have faith. Dare yourself to go farther than you can see. Who knows what you will find just beyond your sight and reach.
What does this quote say to you?
Awesome— & Amen–We have to share Faith & HOPE & Encourage– & Laughter!! And I believe also share our witness & Jesus light that is in our hearts!!
OH– forgot— may I please share this on my blog????????
Yes, you may share it – just include where it came from.
What this quote says to me is that it brings to mind this scripture in the Bible….Joshua 3:13….when it was time for Joshua to take the Isrealites across the River Jordan into the Promised Land, the priests who were in the lead with the Ark of the Covenant carried on their shoulders atop of poles had to first go into the river ankle deep before the Lord parted the waters of the river for them to cross over into the Promised Land….a true picture of Kathy’s reference to putting one foot in front of the other as she dared herself to go further by faith…..
Patricia – thank you for your scriptural quote as well.
