Believe

I recently watched a Christmas movie where santa was on trial.  People who believed that santa did exist wore buttons that said "I Believe".  As Christians we are called to not only believe in God and His Son, but also to take action based on this belief.  It is one thing to believe, but entirely another to act on this belief.  I can believe parachuting is a safe activity, but to actually jump out of a perfectly good airplane to test this belief, is a very different thing.  Belief in something does not allow you to effectively share in an experience or relationship without action.

I can believe in my wife, but not put that belief into action.  Believing in Heather means trusting her with my feelings, emotions and dreams.  It means trusting her ability to be a mom, and to love me regardless of my mistakes.  Trusting in God means putting yourself out there in a way that offers a wonderful experience of dependence and growth, only trust can provide.  God wants to do amazing and wonderful things in your life, we must only believe actively!

John 11:40, "Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you believe, you ill see the glory of God?""

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
