“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 many evidences of His existence. The greatest expression of His presence in my life is the peace and joy I have when I focus my attention on Him. The primary reason I believe in the Lord, when there are many who deny His existence, is because He gave me the gift of faith. Now, the fellowship I have with others who also believe in Him is much different than the kind of friendships that I had with people before I started following Jesus. The amazing thing about all of my relationships 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. I thank God for giving me the understanding to trust Him.
