Faith Imagined

Alisa Hope Wagner: Christian Writer

Hope's Toll

Forsaken in my circumstance
Left idle on the floor
Jumped to another second chance
That ended like before

But my God is faithful
His love steadfast
My trust outweighs the hurt
And Hope will last

Doubt dares to distort my vision
Fear yearns to tear my strength
Hold the noose of indecision
Like a snake at arm’s length

But my God is faithful
His love steadfast
My trust outweighs the hurt
And Hope will last

Let go of my understanding
Patient heart on Your throne
My desires cease demanding
Loyalty I have sown

How my God is faithful
His love steadfast
My trust outweighs the hurt
And Hope will last

Peace seeps into tight constriction
Joy sings a freedom song
Christ bestows a benediction
Embracing all my wrong

My faith saves my steps
God’s love heals the soul
Trust outweighs my hurt
And Hope takes her toll

Well Mrs. Alisa HOPE Wagner you sing a beautiful song!

"Hope will last", "trust outweighs the hurt", "desires cease demanding", "left idle on the floor", "Hope taskes her toll".

So much is here to be heard.

I encourage you to sing more.

Are you familiar with Amy Carmichael? She was a very strong woman of faith with an amazing story. She wrote some books and such. Look up he "If" book/story. It is beautiful and your poem reminds me of "If" for some reason. Let me know what you think:)

Thank you, Alisa! We often forget that faith is the substance of things HOPED for, the evidence of things not seen.

Blessings,
Susan :)
