Just a little…

Rain beating against the windshield, I drove down the back roads hurrying to my destination. Pouring over the past, consumed with the pressures of the present and turning over the possibilities of the future, my mind raced as I listened to my ipod.
Then the song started playing. I know I’ve heard it before… many times. But this time it was different. How could I have missed the words? How could I have missed the meaning? Well, maybe not John Hiatt’s intended meaning but The Writers meaning. Driving down the lonely road, this time, the song felt like a serenade being sung straight to my heart.

Have a Little Faith written by John Hiatt

When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
An’ have a little faith in me

An’ when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try, baby
An’ have a little faith in me

Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

An’ when your secret heart
Cannot speak so easily
Come here darlin‘ from a whisper start
Have a little faith in me

An’ when your back’s against the wall
Just turn around an’ a you will see
I’ll be there, I’ll be there to catch your fall
So have a little faith in me

Cause I’ve been loving you for such a long time, baby
Expecting nothing in return
Just for you to have a little faith in me
You see time, time is our friend
‘Cause for us there is no end
All you gotta do is have a little faith in me

I will hold you up!
I’m gonna hold you up!
So have a little faith in me

Have a little faith in me

Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

“We live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Cor. 5:7

“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!'” Mark 9:24

“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matt 17:20

“The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17
