The Laugh Of Faith

The laugh of faith is: victory
while yet in the midst of the storm,
while battles grow fierce, and sharp arrows pierce,
attempting much spiritual harm.

The laugh of faith is: joy
during times of suffering and loss;
it is knowing the Savior looks only with favor,
as you struggle, yet carry your cross.

The laugh of faith is: peace
when the waves flow o'er the boat,
and demons of hell prevent you to bail,
and you know for a fact you can't float.

The laugh of faith is: love
when unlovely people assail,
when, through no fault of your own, you stand alone,
and companions forsake you to fail.

The laugh of faith is: long suffering
when the trials seem never to end;
you are at the end of your rope with no reason to hope,
forsaken by even your friends.

The laugh of faith is: gentleness
with those who torment your soul;
they don't understand God's purpose and plan,
they just threaten, malign and scold.

The laugh of faith is: goodness
when no one is good to you;
others will doubt you, spread gossip about you,
but you let your Savior shine through.

The laugh of faith is: knowing your God
has your life in the palm of His hand,
your trials under control, making you whole;
that your victory is part of His plan.

The laugh of faith is the Spirit of God
reigning and ruling within;
the outcome is sure for He will endure
and on this secret He'll let you in.
