“I do believe in fairies. I do. I do.”

It was the cry of a distraught boy who never grew up. On the cold dark ground his small-winged friend lay limp, as the harsh black sky draped over her.

And then her light went out.


No light. No life. No hope.

But even still, the boy did not give up. He contended for her life to shine bright once more.

He fought with words of Belief.

“I do believe in fairies. I do. I do.”

And Hope stirred as the cry lifted in the air magnifying the words throughout the land. And soon the voices of many could be heard.

Because Hope is contagious.

And a twinkle turned into a full blown glow filling her up with life, energy, flight and color.

Because Hope heals.

What if?

What if we believed past the land of make-believe and declared words of belief over our body, mind and soul.

What if this cancer—this damn cancer—growing inside the body of a loved one…ceased to exist because Hope drove it out?

What if?

What if this cancer—this sin cancer—growing inside my own soul ceased to exist because Hope drove it out?

What if I contended for my marriage, my kids, my life with words of Hope?

I lay limp on the cold ground only because I have chosen for my own light to go out. It is I who drank the poison of unbelief.

I must believe there is Hope. I must. If I don’t, my unbelief will surely usher my soul to its death.

I can sit here and let the cancer eat me alive leaving me to suffer the loss of more broken hearts and homes…or

I can choose to believe. Not in fairies, for I will not give in to wishful thinking. But I will give in to Holy declaration.

I do believe in Jesus. I do. I do.

I believe there is a God who not only knows me, cares for me and loves me—but longs to heal my soul—and yours.

Do you believe?

On the journey with you,


Here or somewhere…be real. Share your journey.
