Do You Believe?


I find it so hard at times

to explain myself

&

to defend myself

because of what I believe~

and maybe because

I am not supposed to

explain myself or

defend myself

because it isn't me

that I have to prove.

I

BELIEVE in GOD.

I

BELIEVE in JESUS.

I

BELIEVE in THE WORD.

It is quite simple

yet

it is so easy for me to get my feathers ruffled

when

I am questioned or debated

about what I

BELIEVE

so that I take it upon myself

to have to prove

that

GOD is GOD

&

JESUS is JESUS

&

THE WORD is TRUTH.

But

I am not GOD.

I am not JESUS.

I did not write THE WORD.

It so saddens me

that

everyone does not believe

IN GOD

IN JESUS

&

IN THE WORD.

Which makes me wonder~

Who then created the earth?

Who then created the seas?

Who then created you & I?

Which makes me wonder~

Who then offers eternal life?

Maybe it is better for me

to wonder with sadness

when others don't

BELIEVE IN

GOD

JESUS

&

THE WORD

than to have to try to prove

that

GOD is LOVE

JESUS SAVES

&

THE WORD is TRUE

&

just continue

to share

HIS TRUTH

that I

BELIEVE

because

I know

that

GOD is GOD

&

JESUS is JESUS

&

THE WORD is TRUTH.

I pray

that anyone who questions

will also

come to

BELIEVE

because

they

KNOW

that

“I am the[only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me" (John 14:6)

because

I didn't say it

but

JESUS

did

&

HE

didn't have to prove

HIMSELF

to me to be TRUE

because

HE

just loved me enough

to pursue me

&

to pursue you

enough

to become so

REAL

that

HE

makes it impossible not to

BELIEVE.

Therefore

If you

BELIEVE

GOD is GOD

then you will

BELIEVE

JESUS IS JESUS

then you will

BELIEVE

THE WORD is TRUTH

&

can read it

&

experience

that

GOD is GOD

&

JESUS is JESUS

&

and then what more proof would you need.

I didn't say it

but

JESUS did~

"For I have come down from heaven not to do MY will but to do the will of HIM who sent ME.

And this is the will of HIM who sent ME, that I shall lose none of all those HE has given ME, but raise them up at the last day.

For my FATHER'S will is that

everyone who looks to the SON & BELIEVES IN HIM

shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:38-42)
