Help Thou My Unbelief!

Sometimes it seems to me as though I am only blogging about stress and sadness but I am actually rather content.  I suppose I blog when I’m nervous because the poetical or philosophical side of me tends to surface during times of trial.  I assure you, I am aware of my fortunes, too.

I’ve been building a lot of relationships.  If I’ve learned anything over the last year it’s that I have to strengthen my bridges.  That means I have to come out of my shell at times, do things that I don’t necessarily want to do and be places I would rather not be.  And every time I’ve had an attitude about doings things I don’t want to do and being places I don’t want to be, I’ve been proven wrong each and every time.  I’ve met some interesting people and created some great opportunities for myself, not to mention giving a little boost to my self-confidence.

I admit that I doubt in God’s intentions for me at times.  I pray for trust. . . and I am amply rewarded when I find my faith!

“But if you can do anything, have compassion and help us!”

Jesus said to him, “If you can!  Everything is possible to one who has faith.”

Then the boy’s father cried out, “I do have faith!  Help my unbelief!”  (Mark 9:22-24)
