I Found God in Tap Shoes...

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

If you’ve ever watched someone tap dance, you know the amazing and intricate steps they do to create the rhythmic tapping. If you weren’t actually seeing it, you wouldn’t believe it could be done.

Believing in God is the complete reverse of that. We cannot see Him; yet we’ve witnessed the miracles of his existence. We cannot hear Him; yet we’ve heard the symphonies of many of his creations. We cannot smell Him; yet we’ve breathed deeply the Heavenly scents of the garden of life sowed by Him. We cannot touch Him; yet we are touched in so many ways by Him.
We believe in that which we cannot physically see, hear, smell, or touch. That is faith.

Maggie - what a beautiful expression of faith!

It would seem to me that it's easier to have faith in God than to believe that our life is left to chance and that this world is nothing more than an accident or result of an unplanned explosion. If we open our eyes, ears, and the rest of our senses how can we not realize that God is all around us and the creator of all.
