Belief is Proof of the Unseen!

In this scientific age that wants to see proof of everything before you believe it, it is refreshing to find that many who have suffered for their faith through the centuries have found strength and comfort in the unseen.
In Germany during World War 2, Jews in hiding left this inscription on a cellar wall.
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when not feeling it. I believe in God even when he is silent.

Help us Lord to live out our faith in you, even when it is cloudy, even when we do not see or feel you close to us and especially when you seem silent to us, Amen.

An Island Prayer

O Jesus,
Be the canoe that holds me in the sea of life.
Be the steer that keeps me straight.
Be the outrigger that supports me in times of great temptation.
Let your Spirit be my sail that carries me through each day.
Keep my body strong, so that I can paddle steadfastly on in the long voyage of life.

Anonymous from Vanuata formerly New Hebrides, a group of islands north of Australia know as Melanesia.
