A random FB comment led me to search out a friend's blog this evening and I found this quote:
There are two kinds of faith–the “hall of fame faith” which conquered kingdoms, earned justice, and saw miracles. Then there is the faith we tend to discredit–the faith which results in chains, imprisonment, and death. But what we forget is, their faith was heroic faith, too.
I appreciated that. Just because something that we pray for doesn't have a picture-perfect ending (as we see it), it doesn't mean that our faith was wrong/weak/failing. Thanks, Heather.
