The Spirt Lifts Me Up Again...

"My faith is tested many times every day, and more times than I'd like to confess, I'm unable to keep the banner of faith aloft. If a promise is not kept, or if a secret is betrayed, or if I experience long-lasting pain, I begin to doubt God and God's love. I fall so miserably into the chasm of disbelief that I cry out in despair. Then the Spirit lifts me up again,  and once more I am secured in faith. I don't know how that happens, save when I cry out earnestly I am answered immediately and am returned to faithfulness.  I am once again filled with Spirit and firmly planted on solid ground."
By Maya Angelou,  "In The Spirit," Wouldn't Take Nothing For My Journey Now.
