Blog to Believe
4/29/2008 4:52:46 PM

Even if you do not believe in God, you must admit there is a higher power. Where else would creativity come from, if not from a more evolved being? We don’t go around saying: “Thank, God” for nothing. How about “God bless you” when someone sneezes? These few examples demonstrate that people, even those reluctant ones, believe in something they can’t explain. Someone they have never seen.

I have a sign that goes up over the front door at Christmas. It is one word: Believe.

What specifically does that mean? I see it as believing in life and believing in the power of giving, the power of family, the power of a story that happened thousands of years ago in a little town far, far away. The birth of a baby is a miracle, and perhaps the humanizing of believing began with the little boy in the manger, just a way of bringing us to a level of understanding.

It is not so much that one needs to embrace this concept, but more the symbolism of what the miracle of the birth of believing is about, that which is inside each of us. Because inside each of us, is where God resides. We were made in His image and likeness, again words to humanize believing.

We are all blessed in some way and we all have talents that no human being could give to us, no amount of genetics could pass on. There is a knowing that some things we must simply believe exist without reason, like prayer working, and no one knows why.

So to blog about believing is to blog about what we can not see, hear, smell, or touch.

Believing is not tangible. Believing is a gift from God.

Blog what you feel.
