Everyone needs to believe in something. To go life alone is pretty much impossible. There is a popular saying that tells us if we just believe in ourselves, anything is possible.
As my art journal page below shows, I do believe that we can have desires and wishes that might seem impossible. I don’t believe we can just make a wish and expect impossible things to happen. But I do know that with God nothing is impossible.

Believe in God
To rely only on myself to make sense of life or of my calling does not get me very far. But there is someone else I can believe in who gives meaning to life. Jesus came to earth to demonstrate His love by dying for us, even though we were sinners.
But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Jesus came to be a light in this dark world. When I believe in Him I am no longer in darkness. He gives me life and direction. [bctt tweet=”As I read the Bible I learn how to live with love and have peace. ” username=”GaylWright”]
This is what Jesus said:
On my own I can only go so far, but if I trust in Jesus, who is all powerful, I can accomplish much more. He gives me strength to follow His leading. Because I have confidence in Him, I can reach for my dreams. I can meet new people, make room for silence and contemplation, share the goodness of God with all I meet.
Using the talents and strengths He has given me, I can leave creative echoes and encourage people along the way. Whatever life brings, I can have peace and know that God will give me the strength to keep going. In fact, each of us who know the Lord can be encouragers in this world.
I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.
