I Want To Believe But… Some Things Are Beyond Belief.

2Kings 7:1-2

Life is full of miracles. It’s crazy the ones we struggle with! If there is a Supreme Being, then why would we question whether He can rise again, bring abundance, heal, deliver, answer us, change our situation, produce financial miracles, etc?!


If God wants to do something, however He wants to do it, that’s His prerogative.

“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservations—a trust in a God who has shown himself worthy of that trust.
Certainty isn’t the heart of faith—trust is.”
– Atheist-turned-Christian, Alister McGrath

– Addie Zierman
