I Believe

Last month, I wrote about five little words that helped inspire a young woman to put together the pieces of a shattered life.

Imagine – Create – Believe

Achieve – Inspire – Transform

If you can imagine a better life, you can create it. If you believe you can, you will find the strength and resources to make it happen. But first you have to believe.

We are often Unaware of our Beliefs

Beliefs involve a conviction, a mindset and attitude – an approach to life where we take a position or point of view and act upon it with the assumption that something good or positive will result.

We don’t often think about it, but our beliefs are influencing our decisions in one way or another all the time. Some we rarely give much thought to; such as the sun rising and setting even when hidden by clouds – we simply take for granted it is there. Others seem insignificant, such as believing your favorite sports team will win and cheering them on in the stands.

Yet, our beliefs guide and direct what we do all the time. In fact, when we do things that go against our beliefs and values, we will feel discontented, uneasy and distressed.

Create

Not everybody feels they have the ability to create. But I’m not sure I would agree.

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. . .” Gen 1:1

When you look up at a star studded sky or watch the first rays of the sun rise above the curve of the earth, or stop to appreciate a panoramic stunning display of clouds colored by a setting sun, we are silenced and awed by the beauty.

“Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness . . . (Gen 1:26) and then God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. . .” (Gen 2:7)

Did we receive some of that ability to create when God breathed life into us? I believe we did.
