Straining or Believing

strainbrainI’m not talking about waiting to the point of a brain strain by trying to “believe” so Tinkerbell’s light will stay on.  As a child I watched the Disney movie, Peter Pan.  In the scene where the fairy’s light of life would go out forever if the audience didn’t “believe,” I felt the challenge and did my part.  Unfortunately, that contaminated my definition of faith and believing and made it a matter of strain and feelings and human achievement.  Waiting on God is about believing God is aware of every part of our lives and refusing to doubt that He is both willing and planning to show Himself powerfully faithful.
