Help My Unbelief

And Jesus said, [You say to Me], 
If You can do anything?

[Why,] all things can be (are possible) to him who believes!

  At once the father of the boy gave 
[an eager, piercing, inarticulate] 
cry with tears, and he said, Lord, I believe! 

[Constantly] help my weakness of faith!

Mark 9:23-24 msg

Oh how strong my faith seems
as I sit in the quiet
alone with You.

My faith may seem to tower
as I type out what 
You have whispered to my soul
from Your Word.

Standing in worship
surrounded by fellow believers
it is so easy to sing out 
my trust in You.

But as the day wears on,
and the tests and trials come 
my responses reveal what I 
truly believe deep down in my heart.

Worries whirl in my head
as I lay in the darkness.

Complaints spill from my lips
when things don't go 
the way I want them to.

Fear creeps in
taunting me,
calling me to follow.

Humbly I join that father
on his knees before You.

I do believe.
Please, help my unbelief. 

Dear God, my Master, 
You created earth and sky
by Your great power —
by merely stretching out Your arm!
There is nothing You can't do.

Jeremiah 32:17 msg

This is so good.!
The same thing happens to me.

Father, help my unbelief.

I think this is a commonality for all Christians at some point in their walk - sometimes on a regular basis. Isn't it good to know that He is there willing and ready to help? Such a comfort.
