Just Believe

Believe - to have trust, faith, or confidence

".......blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."  Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.  But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
John 20:29-31  New International Version

I believe, therefore, I do not worry.  I trust.  I have faith.  I have confidence.  In the times we experience a perceived trial we have a choice.  We always have a choice.  These times of trial are opportunities to exercise our trust, our faith, and our confidence in the Lord and in things yet unseen.   It's really just that simple.  We tend to make things more complicated than necessary.  We tend to over dramatize and exaggerate the situation.  Why? We see things differently when we realize we are spiritual beings having human experiences, rather than human beings having (or not having) spiritual experiences.
Jesus is alive and well today and is still performing miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples who are living and breathing today.  Will you be on the receiving end of a miracle today or will you be the disciple who is the vessel God can use to bring a miracle to one of His people?  Either way I think about it, I am excited about the new day ahead of me and the wonderful ways Jesus presents Himself to us.
Keep your eyes and ears open and tuned in to the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in your life today. You will be amazed!  Take care and have a wonderful day and just believe!  Love, Nan
