Belief or Unbelief?

It's been awile since I've posted...I don't know if I'm brain dead or on brain overload...It's been that way recently...couldn't seem to connect...until earlier this week. I had a great devotion time with God on Wednesday, and it came as I was flipping through the Bible from one location to another. From an earlier devotion I had underlined a phrase, and it caught my eye along with the text in the Amplified Version of the Bible. In a nutshell it talked about how the disciples had not learned from a miracle God had performed, and it reminded me of myself...so difficult to learn. The problem is that it boils down to belief or unbelief. Through 3 different devotions, it all clicked - even though I am still trying to put all the pieces together. (It's bound to make a Sunday school lesson one day - maybe others can learn from it, too.)

We all know in our heads that with God nothing is impossible. But sometimes it's so difficult to work that into our hearts and our way of life. God showed me the hardness of my heart...and the power of His Son...resurrection power...what more do we need? We get so wrapped up in ourselves, we miss what God is doing right before our eyes.

So don't forget that God is active in your life...He knows what's going on, and He has resurrection power to raise whatever seems dead in your life...It's one of His specialities!

Hugs,

S

I'm glad you decided to do a post today. For some reason I have been clicking around and found you! Let me encourage you to keep Believing God to do huge things in your life! I am sure everyone has seasons where they have a hard time getting the Word from their heads to their hearts. Maybe it's just me. Anyway, I will say a prayer for you right now that you can feel in your heart what your head knows! Keep Believing God. He is SO good and worthy of Praise. Also, when I feel distant I must listen to a lot of Praise and Worship music. Music feeds my soul. Just an idea!

Much love to you this Friday night!
