On things we cannot see

We cannot see the most important things in our lives. But we know they are real. We know they are present. We know they are true.

We cannot see air, but we know it’s all around us. We know we cannot live without it.

We cannot see hope, but we know (or I hope that we all know) that it’s there. There is always hope. Without hope, what’s the point of living? What’s the point of all our struggles?

We cannot see our dreams. At least, until they are fulfilled. Yet, we live each day (I truly hope that we do) working hard towards our dreams, believing that one day, we will reach them.

We cannot see love. But we can feel it. We know when it’s there. Especially authentic, selfless love.

We cannot see peace. But we know when we have external and internal peace. Sure, we often take it for granted, but we know how important it is.

We cannot see the most important things in our lives. But we know they are real. We know they are present. We know they are true.

The same is true for God. We cannot see Him. We cannot fully comprehend Him. But we know He is always with us. We know that without Him, we are nothing.

“If I tell you about earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?” — John 3:12

Believe... even in things you cannot see. Especially in things you cannot see.
