Object of Faith

Some will say faith in God is a crutch
You have religion and are out of touch
They agree that faith is all that you need
But what is the object of that faith indeed?

By looking up faith in the dictionary, we see
A definition that becomes clear to you and me
It is a belief and trust in and loyalty to God
For He is all you need on the path you trod

Maybe your faith is focused on your ability
You continue to try hard in every reality
If you are relying on your own will-power
What happens when your plans go sour?

Putting your trust in God really makes sense
So please don't ever think it is all nonsense
The problem is that people do not understand
Who God is and they don't see His eternal plan

Perhaps you don't even know where to start
Much less how to deal with pain in your heart
You can talk to God like you do a close friend
Be honest and He will help you to the very end

Maybe this is the cry and prayer of your heart today
God, I reach out to You, help me, I have lost my way
All that I have tried has failed and I am without hope
I need Your strength every hour so that I can cope

You see, my friend, God cares so much about you
He knows everything that you are going through
Don't be afraid to take that first step of faith today
Your life will have new joy and purpose each day

Hebrews 11:3 (NIV)
By faith we understand that the universe was formed
at God's command, so that what is seen was not made
out of what was visible.
