Inner strength and glow, the one that makes others wonder what makes you tick (Jesus makes me tick and tock), the one that comes from an understanding that I can also walk on water, I can go to the bank with God’s promise cos He is the never-defaulting guarantor, theone that Hebrews 11 explained-
1 The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd. (Hebrews 11:1-2 MSG)
