Have you struggled to really believe God at his word? Trust that his word will really happen for you? I’ve struggled with this my whole life. I easily believe he exists, sent Jesus who died to cleanse us from sin, that Spirit exists now, that eternal life awaits. But, miracles? healing? God with us here and now? peace given us? a definitive plan for each of us? counts our tears? or the hairs on our head? is guiding us? comforts us? A real experience of God now?
These alluded me many times. I’ll say I believe these things are possible, but deep within, I doubt they can happen for me. I hope, and also doubt.
But again, death has changed me. The calm of comfort in the midst of sorrow is now real to me. The healing balm on my oozing pain is now real to me. Spirit’s strength and joy when I’m fading and giving up, is now real to me. The cleansing of my heart and focus when I struggle with my desires, is now real to me. The embrace of peace in the midst of overwhelming loneliness is now real to me. Yes, REAL TO ME.
God, you made us, YOU KNOW HOW TO REACH US. You know how to reach within and minister to our doubting souls. I now believe fully and trust fully that you will meet my cries, longings, needs, and prayers.
Blessed Be The Name of the Lord!
