#DailyPrompt: Reason to Believe ~ and Reflections on a Challenge

What’s your reason to Believe?

Lidia WylangowskaThe capital “B” is of course my addition.  For there is one overwhelming reason “to believe”, which is the beauty and goodness of the world and of its Creator. Despite the miseries, the poverty, rampant greed and ignominy of the all-powerful and the rich: on one side is Evil, on the other Good, and our destiny is to defeat the former, and to glorify the latter.

And then, I found inspiration in this year’s challenge (A to Z), discovering blogs, books and geographies I had never encountered before. Challenge, discovery, faith… Plenty of reasons to Believe!

#FiveSentenceFiction: Armor

St Michael

He stands in front of you, unarmed

Dominated, in awe, a small being

In the immensity of

Your wisdom

Your will unknowable,

His destiny in your hands.

He stands, his armour

Is his faith,

Unshakable, unassailable

His body may die,

What does it matter to you?

You know.

Faith moves mountains.

The future is in his hands.
