Need to Believe

In hurting, we need.

In needing, we long.

In longing, we seek.

In seeking, we find.

In finding, we realize.

In realizing, we remember.

In remembering, we ask.

In asking, we receive.

In receiving, we know.

In knowing, we trust.

In trusting, we stand.

In standing, we imagine.

In imagining, we see.

In seeing, we redeem.

In redeeming, we heal.

In healing, we praise.

In praising, we hear.

In hearing, we anoint.

In anointing, we share.

In sharing, we assemble.

In assembling, we belong.

In belonging, we love.

In loving, we create.

In creating, we become.

In becoming, we rejoice.

In rejoicing, we abide.

In abiding, we believe.

  1. This is so great. A psalm of ascents. Wish I’d written it. Perfect illustration, too.
