Faith is the bird that sings while it is yet dark. (Max Lucado, author)

2020 was a dark year for a lot of people. Whether it was the pandemic, the economy, or politics, many folks found it difficult to face life and its problems with any hope. Yet, there were others who seemed to weather the storms with tranquility and steadfastness. Lucado’s comment raises the question of the source of faith. Make sure your trust is in something secure and lasting.

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
