A person who believes that a specified thing is effective, proper, and desirable.
To me, that would pertain to just about everyone. Most people desire to live in a world without pain and suffering; desperate for freedom from the evils of the past, the chains, and the lies.
People all around are telling us that life as we once knew it is over and that we’ll never make it, we can never take it, and that it’s time to quit.
We need to seek answers to the questions, the fears, the whys, and the cries facing us every day.
We need to believe that things that are broken can be built back up and that there is always a future if we are to believe.
Believing is the cornerstone of the simple pleasures in life, and therefore this is not only the beginning of a new year, but each day is another opportunity for us to do good things and to do what is right.
So, if you see a life that is all snared up, with no hope in sight, it’s far from over!
Besides, being a believer myself, I say, “It’s not over until God says it’s over.”
The greatest force for making us feel bigger and better than we are now is the belief in our hearts that we still have the infinite potential to believe in God and each other; to have someone believe in us, even when we fail, is the most blessed and creative force in the universe.
“The sun, with all of those planets moving round it, can ripen the smallest amount of grapes as if it had nothing else to do. Why then should I doubt his power?”
One more thought; we must believe in God’s promises; he meant it when he said “I am with you always.”
