Soul Food for Friday: Quotes for Keeping the Faith

San Diego Padres fans over the years have heard great marketing slogans for supporting our team: Keep the Faith and Keep on Believing. (I did suggest last year for Padres fans that our slogan should be, “We need a miracle!”)

No matter your sports team or where you find yourself in life today, we all need to be reminded of the power of faith and even more the power of Jesus when we believe in Him. May this week’s soul food for Friday quotes on faith help you keep the faith.
