Help Thou Mine Unbelief
By James Dillet Freeman

Faith is not an abstraction, it is an attitude towards life, a feeling about life. It does not come out of signs and miracles or any outward happenings so much as out of inward growth.

If you cannot believe in much, then believe in the little that you can. Start where you are and grow. What seed can have a foreknowledge of the tree it will become? Waht thorny bush can prophesy the rose? What worm can tell of the butterfly? Faith grows.

If you find yourself deploring how little your faith is, think how far you have come with the little faith you have. As you climb a hill, it is sometimes well to look back to see how far you have come instead of always looking at the insurmountable heights ahead.

Sometimes, you may have more faith than you imagine, and when you need it, you will find it there within you.

"Therefore, let all who are faithful offer prayer to you, at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them."   
--- Psalm 32:6
