Believing When You Can’t See

One of my favourite inspirational sayings was found scratched on the wall of a cellar in Germany after the end of World War 2. Beside it was a Star of David that indicated It had been written by some nameless Jew who had obviously been hiding there. It said: ‘I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I don’t feel it. And I believe in God even when he seems to be silent.’ It is that sort of faith that sustains people when outwardly all is darkness, and gives them hope. The Bible says that we are ‘saved by hope’. And that hope, along with faith and love, are the only things that will stay with us forever. Hope,’ the Bible says, is an anchor for the soul that, when it is well dug into a foundation of faith, will see us through the worst of life’s storms. Seen or unseen, God is still there.
