One of my favorite stories is about this theologian named MacLeod. Now this man lived in Ireland back in the 1600s in a monastery. He worked part of his time as wood carver. MacLeod writes that very often he would awaken in the morning and wonder if God really existed. Finally one day he decided he needed a reminder. So he carved this huge sign to place at the foot of his bed. And for the rest of his life, he would awaken in his bedchamber and there on the wall hung a plaque that said, "God exists." To him it made all the difference in the world. He said that upon seeing that sign each morning he would go throughout each day remembering who God was and what had been done by God just for him.
