I Believe...
That we should celebrate everyday,
for everyday is a gift from God.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you allow God to
control your attitude,
or it controls you.



I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time to become
the person I want to be.
But, I'm still breathing, so God's not done with me yet.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down,
will be the ones to put out their hands
and help you get back up.

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences we've had,
and what we've learned from them...
and less to do with how many
birthdays we've celebrated.

I Believe...
That sin costs more than we ever expect to pay.

I Believe...
That you can never fall so far
that you are beyond the reach of God.

I Believe...
That though we sometimes fail,
God's love covers a multitude of sins.

I Believe...
That you can't merely go around your grief,
you have to go through it to heal.

I Believe...
That though we travel through difficult waters,
God will give us the strength to swim.

I Believe...
That when we feel the loneliest,
God is still right beside us.

I Believe...
That though others may fail us,
God's love never ends.

I Believe...
That all things happen for a reason,
though we may never know their purpose.

I Believe...
That miracles happen every day.

I Believe...
That when we open our broken hearts to God,
His healing love rushes in.

I Believe...
That when we give our lives to the Lord,
we breathe for the very first time.

I Believe...
"That love never gives up, never loses faith,
is always hopeful, and endures through
every circumstance."  (1 Corinthians 13:7)

I Believe...

Living for Him,

  4. Hi Joan! What a beautiful list of beliefs. And my head was bobbing along as I read. I believe right along with you. We may never know why we have to do things we do. We just have to do them.
    And the 'broken hearts' one? I love that too. How can he heal if there is no break?
    Wonderful post. I really enjoyed reading it!
