Lord, I believe...help my unbelief

I'm going to church today fully believing for a miracle for someone.  For a lot of people, actually. I have no problem at all doing that.  My faith is high and many times I do see miracles.  I've got faith that the blind will see, the lame will walk, provision will be granted, people will be employed, promotions and favor will be given, destiny will unfold... heck...I have no problem praying to raise the dead!  Bring it on!

There's only one thing or person it's hard for me to believe for and that's...me.  Maybe because it's my life, not somebody else's.  When it comes to believing for other people and their situations, I just know a slice of their life as compared to the whole pie.  And then when I look at my circumstances, they seem insurmountable.  My friend Cassandra Stafford told me the other day when I told her this that it's very common problem, this whole having a hard-time-believing-for-your-own-breakthrough thing.   I know I'm not alone, and...it's still hard.

I know it's the SAME JESUS!!!  The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me...that's what the Word says.   He's my miracle worker too.  He can do anything.  Lord, I believe...help my unbelief.

Listening to this for the umpteenth bazillionth time.  I will have it on repeat for God knows how long.  Well...until I feel faith rising, actually...

Maybe somebody else needs to hear this today and I'm preaching to myself as much as you -- put on a song like this and put it on repeat until you sense faith rising for your breakthrough.  It takes a while sometimes.  Don't give up.  We only need faith as small as a mustard seed and some days that's all we've got but He can work with it!!!

PD you are not alone in this feeling- I feel the same way at times- when I believe God can move moments for others while we wait for our breakthroughs-
So just know others are believing for your breakthroughs as much as you believe for theirs- We all have to believe-

Nope not alone at all! Sometimes...nope...ok often, we need others to believe for us because it helps raise our unbelief for ourselves. You and Michele have been doing a lot of believing for me and I have been for you both. I truly believe this is the year of break through not only for me but for you two as well. Love you!

I agree - I even feel the same way with taking care of myself. For some reason I always make sure that my kids have their vitamins while I forget mine. I make sure they eat very well while I grab a snack. I squash the first onset of a cold in them while I ignore the signs in me. Your title is something I have said for the past 14 years...so hard to jump that hurdle. Thanks for sharing - need to go listen to the song right now!
