I Believe

“The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe.”

–David Hare

Start with the phrase, “I believe,” and then complete the sentence. “I believe in magic.” “I believe it’s more important to have a clean house than it is to eat vegetables for dinner.” Then use, “I believe,” again, for the start of the second sentence. And the third. And the fourth. Repeat until you have nothing more to say. Don’t think or plan—just write. If you do this exercise well, some of the things you believe should surprise you.

  1. I believe that God created me because he wanted my companionship and that is why I must worship him.
    I believe that when I am in worship with him he will equip me with all I shall need to take his message of unconditional love to others as I share his message of salvation to everyone.
    I believe that doing his business under His direction is the path toward happiness and contentment.
    I believe the ultimate aim of all of life is to work toward His acknowledgment on that final judgement day.

      Hi Amy. I appreciate the way you expressed your spiritual beliefs an openly testified. I am sure there are many other things you believe in but that is certainly the surest place to start.

  2. I believe there are lessons everywhere and we just need to be awake enough to learn from them.

    I believe we grow together by giving each other space.

    I believe practices build character and character is the best vehicle to shine your light.

    I believe in the healing limitless power of love.
