Believing When Believing is Hard


We can sit among loving Christians in worship and say to ourselves, “I believe in God!” We
can be enjoying a meal with the family and express our belief in God. We can be hoeing the
garden, cleaning house, watching the sunset, watching the children at play and a thousand other
things and reaffirm our strong belief in God.

What about when nothing is going right? What about when a family member has a terminal
illness? What about when we have been robbed, or our house burned by an arsonist? What if one
of our children was molested? What if suddenly we found we have no money and no income?
Can we heartily say, “I believe in God”?

The point is, when all’s well, we can see God by the eye of faith; but when nothing seems
right, we lose sight of God. After World War II, in a cellar in Cologne, Germany, were found
these words on a wall: “I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining. I believe in love, even
when I feel it not. I believe in God, even when He is silent.”

John Wright
