Beautiful Words!

Doubt sees the obstacles;
Faith sees the way.
Doubt sees the darkest night;
Faith sees the day.
Doubt dreads to take a step;
Faith soars on high.
Doubt questions 'who believes?';
Faith answers, 'I.' ''

Note: The picture above is from BBC's Planet Earth, the Seasonal Forests episode. In this scene, a species of duck in, I believe, the Russia area, hatched some chicks in a hollow high up in a tree. In order to get to water, the newborn chicks must make a long jump down to the ground. The scene is very hilarious as the mama duck cheers the chicks on, and they jump out one by one and land in a big splash of leaves. :-) The picture seemed to me to reflect the words of the poem a little, because we are like the chicks, small, weak, and fearful, and sometimes must move ahead even when it's scary. But with God leading us along and helping us, we can do it.
