cling. be dependent. cry for help.

from The Blazing Center

God gives to His people the propensity to cling. Though this is a very simple sort of faith, it is a very complete and effectual form of it. In fact, it is the heart of all faith, and that to which we are often driven when we are in deep trouble or when our mind is somewhat bemuddled by sickness or depression in spirit. We can cling when we can do nothing else, and that is the very soul of faith. Always cling to what you know. (C. H. Spurgeon)

from Joni and Friends

I keep hearing the Holy Spirit whisper Hebrews 10:38-39, “‘But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him.’ But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.” What a courageous verse — it invigorates my faith, enlarges my heart, and makes me want to be “of those who believe and are saved!” (Joni Eareckson Tada)

from Tom Pennington’s sermon on Mark 9:14-29

“But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:22-24

in honor of Hannah’s Romans 5:1-11 challenge

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
