“I bring you the gift of these four words: I believe in you.”Blaise Pascal

I might never have met you face to face.  In fact, I may not even know who you are, or that you are reading this blog at all.  But I still believe in you.

I believe in you because I believe each and every person is created in the image of God, and capable of beautiful deeds.  I believe that everybody can play an important role in this world, no matter what their past has been like.  I believe it is never too late to come back from defeat, discouragement or despair. I believe that there are others who believe in you too, people who are more immediately present in your life, though you may not recognize or know about them.

All of us need the comfort and encouragement that can only come from people who believe in us.  If you feel bereft of this important support, I urge you to seek, pray and be open to it.  It may not come from the sources where you wish to find it.  But if you seek with faith, you will discover it.  I really believe that.

Do not wait

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things
