As I sit at my desk there is a calendar hanging on the bulletin board. As with most American calendars is read the month of November this time of year. I never really paid an attention to it until today. Above the simple writing and dates there is a saying “Believe” and underneath that is “If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing stand in your way. The best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities.” Believe in what? Believe in what I am doing and let nothing or anyone stand in my way. Like my job or marriage? If I believe in what I am doing then it will work out right? As long as I don’t let anything get in my way. Such a worldly statement. I do believe, but it’s in something completely different. It should read “believe” “If you have faith in Him, nothing will stand in your way” Our reliance in our own thinking is what gets us into trouble. I have to believe that the Holy One will deliver me in whatever I do. Believe that He is what keeps me motivated. Believe that He is the one Who restores my soul to me in the morning. Believe that with His help my children will grow into children of G-d. Believe that I will continue to have undying faith and dedication. Believe in Him Who was the same at the beginning of time, the same now, and will be the same for all eternity.
