Thinking

I was putting a book on the pile to return to the library when it fell open to this page.

“It need not discourage us if we are full of doubts.  Healthy questions keep faith dynamic.  In fact, unless we start with doubts we cannot have a deep-rooted faith.  One who believes lightly and unthinkingly has not much of a belief.  He who has a faith which is not to be shaken has won it through blood and tears—has worked his way from doubt to truth as one who reaches a clearing through a thicket of brambles and thorns.”
~~Helen Keller

    Isn’t amazing how messages we need to hear appear right when we need them. Whether it be an open page, a post on a blog, a newspaper item, or just a song you hear–when you need it it is there.

    Psychologists like to call moments when our brains connect something we are thinking about to something which comes into our lives synchronicity, but they admit that Christians often find this to be a connection to God.

    I vote for God.
