At first glance this picture looks like a drawing of children playing on a playground.
A closer look reveals that the children in the picture are playing on the word FE.
The Spanish word Jugar in English means to play
And the word Fe is Faith
This picture was drawn by Ericka a little girl I sponsor through Compassion International. Ericka lives in El Salvador and she is 9 years old. Ericka doesn’t have much as far as material things go, because she and her family live in extreme poverty.
Even though Ericka lives in poverty her picture says to me that she is doing quite well.
The children in this picture are sitting on top of faith, swinging from faith and even hanging upside down from faith.
Dangling upside down from a high place for me would take a whole lot of faith to not be afraid that I would fall. This picture says to me the children in this picture have faith enough to dangle upside down and to stand on top of the highest places.
The children in this picture have huge faith.
I know that Ericka knows the love of Jesus and her picture tells me that she knows what true faith is.
I also find it quite awesome that that Ericka would chose to draw a picture of herself and her friends at play on top of a big giant FE.
FE … FAITH…this picture says it all.
For we live by faith, not by sight. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:7
Did you know that for less than the price of a cup of coffee each day you can help to give a child the gift of hope?
Thank you for reading and today when you leave my blog please consider leaving by way of clicking the picture of the child above. That link will take you to Compassion International’s website where you can get more information about helping a child so he too can know what it means to jugar in fe.
