Borrow my faith

Borrow my faith in you.
I have enough to share.
When your faith falters,
tap into mine.
I rarely know what it’s like
to not feel empowered,
to not have a sense of agency.
But I see that you do
and I see that
YOU
CAN
DO
that which
you are not sure you can do.

Borrow my faith in you.
I have enough to share.
When your faith falters,
tap into mine.
I believe in you.
I see what you cannot see.
I see your strength
when you feel small.
I see your resilience
when you feel like you can’t go on any longer.
I see your beauty
when you feel ugly.
I see your brilliance
when you feel ignorant.

Borrow my faith in you.
I have enough to share.
Hold my hand,
feel my love,
receive my faith.
I believe in you.

Borrow my faith in you.
I have enough to share.
And when you have faith in others,
and their faith falters,
share it with them.
Shower them with your love
and your faith in them.

We are creating a community of believers,
people willing to share their faith in others
and their struggles within themselves.
Let’s tap into our collective love,
our collective faith in ourselves
and each other.
We are creating a community
where being vulnerable is a gift
and inspires others
and is not a weakness.
We are creating a community
where every opportunity
is a moment for self-compassion
and understanding.
We call it
Circles of Practice
but it’s so much more.
It’s a circle of
love,
understanding,
compassion, and
faith.

When your faith falters,
borrow mine.
I have enough to share.
I believe in you
even when you don’t.
Borrow my faith.
I have enough to share.
I
BELIEVE
IN
YOU.
