The Power of Faith Anchored in Belief



People as Christians
have Faith,  but lost in Belief.
Lost to the Unseen.
They worship what is Outer,
unmindful of the Inner.

So, while being lost,
we need to search within us,
where the Spirit dwells;
that which serves as Advocate,
as the Savior directed.

Friend, when you are lost,
are wounded, feel neglected;
feel persecuted,
the Comforter will guide you;
and will make straight your pathways.

That is the power,
 the hidden power of Faith;
anchored in Belief
of the Indwelling Spirit;
our sacred sanctuary.
