Faith in His Future
Poetry by Adele Pilkington, based on the Book of Hebrews’ list of heroes of the faith.
So many heroes of the faith,
So many tales to tell,
Of Gideon, David, Samson,
Jephthah and Samuel.
So many more who suffered wrongs,
Tortured, friendless, homeless,
Turned despair to advantage,
Though to the world seemed powerless.
Are these just tales from history?
Of days of valour gone?
Or do they speak of greater things,
God intended for each one?
Adele Pilkington’s poems take us on a biblical journey, visiting heroes of the faith and learning from their lives. Each one has a message to share with us today. True heroes do not require great skill or strength, but are those who simply trust in God and act upon His promises.
