I have always struggled with faith in my spiritual life. I understand intellectually what I believe but putting such faith in practice is hard; I always want to step in, to intercede in my own behalf, to take over and do that which in faith I have entrusted to God. This figure has climbed a tall staircase; each step has become more narrow, each step seemingly even less supported than the one before it. Yet at the top, with nothing sure before her and the unyielding ground the only thing below her, she is ready to step off in faith. To readily and consistently make that leap of faith is one of my greatest aspirations. I want to live with her confidence and her trust.
