Have a Little Faith
Four mini stories under one roof. In each of these mini stories it reminds me that if I hold onto FAITH, determined not to let it go, that one thing that keeps me moving regardless of what I’m faced with. I can either have FAITH (the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1 KJV) or FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real).
Signs of Light
It’s so important not to quickly judge a book by its cover. Lorna would find that out as she began to develop a relationship with Brittany and her son Kendall. Brittany like a lot of young women had plans that was interrupted by unplanned pregnancy. Not only is she a single mother but a mother of a sick child. Who is now forced into the government system to help offset the mounds of medical bills. After a little detective work, she found out that Brittany’s son was sick and she wasn’t looking for a handout, just a birthday cake. An act of kindness turned into a beautiful mother/daughter relationship. In our economy today even those who are highly educated can find themselves using an EBT card.
Having a little faith will cause you to trust an individual or thing, to get where God is leading you (new business, marriage, investing your time or money in a person or volunteer). “There are a lot of woman out there just like Brittany. Single mothers doing the best they can with what they have. ALL they need is a chance.”

Hurting people hurt others even those they love. Faith would pray when she was a child that her mother, Vera would come an rescue her.

New life can began for Faith and her mother as they leave their pass. Having a little faith in yourself and self worth granted Faith the opportunity to stand up to her grandmother and move forward.
