Keeping the faith

Jeremiah 32:6-9
Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came to me: Hanamel son of your uncle Shallum is going to come to you and say, “Buy my field that is at Anathoth, for the right of redemption by purchase is yours.” Then my cousin Hanamel came to me in the court of the guard, in accordance with the word of the Lord, and said to me, “Buy my field that is at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for the right of possession and redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.” Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord.
And I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel, and weighed out the money to him, seventeen shekels of silver.

Keeping faith 
when all around spells desolation
Keeping faith
against the odds
Keeping faith
in the face of ridicule
Keeping faith
And demonstrating obedience
God calls us today
To keep faith
To demonstrate our faith
in the God
who will bring justice
and peace
The God
who makes all things new
Keeping the faith
