I used to say,
   faith is like
   sitting in a chair.
Before sitting,
   the question,
   "Will it hold me up?
The matter is decided
    in the sitting,
    or the falling.

Some say, "Just believe,"
   it matters not,
   but is it true?
They say "in anything,"
   human ingenuity,
   or a pocket full.
Try it and see,
    expect little,
    never more.

The Word says
   believe in Jesus,
   One sent from God.
Forget the chair,
   One to count on,
   no one better.
No worry here,
   turn loose,
   no falling.

(John 1:7)
