“Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
“His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”
Ephesians 3:10-12

God has blessed me with numerous confirmations of His existence. The greatest evidence of His presence in my life is the peace and joy I have when I focus my attention on Him. I thank God for giving me the faith to believe. I also thank Him for the fellowship I have with others who also believe in Him. Their encouragement and support have helped me many times when I have been discouraged. The amazing thing about my relationship with the Lord is that everything is becoming less complicated. I can see His kingdom principles working, not only in me, but also in my circumstances and other people. My faith in Him seems natural now because He has been so faithful. It is a gift from God and I thank Him for it from the bottom of my heart.
