Today is Spiritual Journey Thursday, a day for me to spend some time turning toward God. Please feel free to join me on this journey each Thursday with Holly Mueller and friends. For the next several weeks, Holly will be featuring our one little words. This week our word is believe, the one little word by Carol from Beyond Literacy.
"And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." ~ Hebrews 11:6
Today I write with a heavy heart. We received word today that a student in our community unexpectedly passed away. She was a second grader. Her sibling is a student in Megan's class.
It is so hard to believe when things like this happen. Why would God take a beautiful little girl when she still had so much life to live? We do not have the answers; we are only asked to believe.
I know that difficult times are not meant to make us stronger, but are meant to strengthen our faith in God.
This is not easy, but we are asked to just believe.
Below are the words from a song by Brooks and Dunn. I have included the video, but the words really say it all. It is a song about believing when we really have more questions than answers. When we are trying to sort out this thing called life.
When I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to this than just what I can see
Oh, I believe
