When life feels surrounded by darkness, when the light of life is dim and it feels like there are no answers…believe in Jesus.  The most difficult part of surrender to God can be setting aside our desire to control the outcome.  We say we believe, we pray like we believe and then we go out and try to ensure things end up the way we desire.  Been there, done that…too many times.  To believe is to trust that if I just do the best I can and offer the best version of myself and trust in God, He will take care of the rest.  He always has and He always will.  The best approach I have found to helping my belief is to memorize bible verses.  Pick one or some that speak clearly to you, if you don’t know any, pick up the good book and read.  I suggest starting in Proverbs.  May we all pray a prayer of surrender and live our lives in way that shows we believe.  Amen.

“When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”  Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you.  Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

Mark 5:27-29,34
