By faith through the void

Faith is:
While forward moving
Stepping out to the void,
Trusting the Hand
Outstretched to us–
Just beyond our grasp.

A paraphrase on a line from Frederick Buechner’s The Magnificant Defeat (HarperOne 1985).
Original quote: “Faith is stepping out into the unknown with nothing to guide us but a hand just beyond our grasp.”
