Faith as substance
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. –Hebrews 11:1, KJV
I’ve been thinking this weekend about faith, and this passage in particular, one I’ve heard all my life. In doing so I’m finding new meaning in it that I never saw before.
This verse seems to me to be saying that faith is actually what the things we hope for are made of. That we in fact manifest what we hope for by having faith in it. And that how we know it’s coming is by looking at our faith. If the faith is there, it will produce results. This will happen.
This post is illustrated with the SoulCollage® card I made today, Faith.

This is one of my favorite quotes as well. I love the tiny buds bearing new life in the black heavens of possibility.
Thanks, Hannah 🙂 It’s hard to represent these abstract concepts with concrete images! Maybe I’ll do one showing full blooms at some point, to show the contrast with the buds …
