Faith raised her Bible upward and opened it while saying, “The Bible tells us a lot about faith. One of my favorite verses says, ‘Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen’ (Heb. 11:1 NRSV).” Heidi thought for a few seconds and then said, “I like that definition of faith.”
“Are you convinced there’s a God?”
“Yes, I am. I know there’s a God,” Heidi said.
“How do you know?”
“Even though I’ve never seen him, I’ve seen a lot of his miracles.” Heidi thought briefly before adding, “I’ve also seen evidence of his presence in the Bible, in the wonders of our world, and in the many good deeds that some people do.”
