Lord I believe………….Help my unbelief

December 2, 2008

Lord I believe, help my unbelief.

Lord I believe, but would you help me see.

Lord I believe, yes I believe.

Lord we believe, could you help us out. 

Help my unbelief………Help my unbelief……..Help my unbelief……….Help my unbelief

 I can remember the first time that someone asked me when I was “born again.”  I didn’t know what to say because I never had that one moment that some people do.  I grew up in church, a methodist one, at that.  We didn’t exactly have alter calls at my church so I grew up claiming to be Christian, but not knowing how I got there…………………

I need to admit something.  Everyday I wake up and wonder to myself, “What if I’m wrong about this?”  “What if I’m wrong about this Christian stuff?” 

It is hard to admit these questions in a christian culture that expects you to have it all together, all the time and doesn’t let you ask the tough questions that everyone knows we want to ask. 

But here is the point……….Every day I wake up and wonder these things, but every day something happens that makes me believe again.  Every day I find that beauty, that wonder and that awe of the Kingdom of God that I have always found so fascinating. 

I see it in the people who care for those who cannot care for themselves. 

I see it in the rich who are starting to ask questions about the poor.

I see it in the people who are standing up for people on the margins who’s voices have been muted.

I see it in the person on the sidewalk that gives a friendly smile.

I see it in the parent who spends time with their family.

I see it in the beautiful creation that we enjoy every day.

I see it in the love that we not just see, but feel.

I see it in the joy of others.

I see it in the innocence of a child who doesn’t know any better.

Every day I see the Truth…………Every day I’m Born Again.
