I heard an inspirational message this week about believing - that we resist saying we believe something because we can’t be certain of it.  But if you take the definition of believe to mean ‘to trust’ then you don’t need to be certain of something to believe it, you just need to trust it.

This subtle shift in meaning has big impacts. How many places have you resisted believing because you weren’t certain? But trusting comes more easily. I can trust that things will work out, that I won’t live my life feeling isolated, that I am enough.  I may not be 100% certain about them right now but I trust them and therefore I believe.
