I WANT A HOSTA LIKE FAITH by Amanda Christensen, WTS 1st Year DL Student

i want a hosta like faith

I want a hosta like faith.
I want a faith that can’t be killed no matter how hard others try.
I want a faith that accentuates every other plant in the garden.
I want a faith that can handle the sun, but prefers the shade.
I want a faith that can move mountains or at least the walkway gravel.
I want a faith that dares to keep growing.

I want a hosta like faith.
I want a faith that someone can say, ‘Friends don’t let friends buy faith.”
I want a faith that connects neighbors over the good, bad and ugly.
I want a faith that can’t be boxed in or walled in or containerize, but grows so abundantly that it needs to be split and transplanted every few years and then split and transplanted again.
I want a faith that shoots up really ugly flowers so everyone knows that under the ground I’m growing deep powerful roots.
I want a faith that comes in over 400 varieties because every day and every moment I am experiencing an amazingly different aspect of God.
