If You Believe

When you see a person with a smile on their face every day even in times of despair, it’s the measure of their faith in God that works within.

When you see a person who constantly has love in their hearts and encouragement for others, it is the love of God that resides in their heart.

No matter the circumstance, their hope is in the Lord. Not in what you see, but in what they believe. They have faith the size of a mustard seed.

They trust God completely with everything. Their confidence shows in the blessing God brings. For they know nothing’s too hard for God. They are hopeful in the Lord.

This is the attitude we should have every day. Regardless, of what comes what may. Our love will show in all we do. The love of God will shine through. And we too can bear fruit.

The branch cannot bear fruit in itself, unless it abides in the vine. It is divine. Jesus is the vine. We are the fruit. Abide in him and he will abide in you.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is in the Lord. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.”
