Lord, I Believe!

Human beings
are designed
to believe -
God made us
that way.
But faith
is twisted
into many shapes.

Some have faith
in "the system" -
the social structure
that keeps things going.
Others trust
political parties,
for environment
or peace.
Some are passionate
about science
and technology.
Some depend
on the latest fad
of food
or fancy.

God waits...
He loves and cares
and reaches out
to straighten
human twistedness.
Creator and Redeemer,
I do believe -
I put my trust
in you.
