In scorn of the consequences

Speak, O people of the Promise: What is the character of your faith?

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Heb. 11:1)

Faith is not belief in spite of the evidence.

Faith is life lived in scorn of the consequences! (Clarence Jordan)

Faith is not the absence of fear or doubt.

Faith is the force that gets you safely through those long, dark, waiting-room hours.

Faith is the actual belief that what one hopes for is attainable. (Merrill Womach)

The beginning of hope is to be conscious of despair in the very air
we breathe, and to look around for something better. (Walker Percy)

Lean, then, on the Everlasting Arms, and declare your intention:

We shall risk in faith, decide in hope, and suffer the consequences
in love!
