I believe because He saw me when I was completely alone. He saw me. And that was enough. I believe. And the circumstances of my aloneness, of my fig tree, of my pre-called life, no longer matter.
And God promises that just as He saw a thing I knew couldn't be seen, doubted would ever be seen--myself; that just as what He; the Creator of all things, all lonely islands, and trees, and selves; the Creator of all oceans and continents and stars and nights and suns saw was one of His created; that just as the God who sees every lost soul saw mine made me first believe; so I, even I, as blind a beggar as I am, will see greater things to make men believe.
