    Sometimes they’re hard to believe; I admit that my faith can be weak.

    Admitting weakness is one thing, but allowing that to dictate the bounds of faith is a slap in the face to those who truly LIVED God’s grace, such as Fr. Maximilian Kolbe, Michael Monsoor, and Michael Murphy, to name a few who come to mind.

    So I’ll believe, even when it’s tough.

    So many wonderful things to remember to believe!

    What if you believed… “those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

    For some reason your post reminded me of Samwise Gamges words to Gandalf about all the bad things coming untrue. And this is something I can just barely wrap my mind around that God will do one day.
    Blessings on your Sunday, Lisa.

    I spend so much useless and needless time worrying about the scary “What Ifs” of the future. I love your list of the very best what ifs – what if I truly believed…?? I have often pondered that. Sometimes it feels like a leap of faith to put aside my worries, and truly trust in the Truth that I know so well. But, what a difference it could make!!

    This was the one that hit me the most – for it echoed something I talked about on my blog today. “What if you believed . . . Jesus is with you right here, right now, in this very thing?” Yes, what if I actually, really believed that – pictured Him right there – and knew in the bottom of my heart that HE KNOWS it all?! It would make all the difference…

    Thanks for a timely message today – so very encouraging.
