What Faith Sees

Too often we're confronted with the possibility that our faith is nothing but wishful thinking or hoping against hope.  But faith isn't looking through rose colored glasses. Faith clearly sees through every despair and sees nothing but Jesus- the hope of glory. Though the trials of life bring about fears that seem nearly impossibly to overcome, faith takes you beyond the present pain and grabs hold of the promises of God that assure you of your future . . . that is for good. Faith knows that there is no such thing as God being "almost" sovereign. Faith presses through the valley hand in hand with the Lord, assured that there are green pastures and quiet waters just up ahead.

"Faith isn't pretending our problems don't exist,
nor is it simply blind optimism.
Faith points us beyond our problems to the 
hope we have in Christ."
-Billy Graham

Hi sweetie, Loved this post and it also reminded me of trust-knowing that the Lord has us in His hands and won't allow anything to come to us except as filtered through His love. Your posts are always such a blessing-please know I am always moved in the spirit here even if I don't comment.
Much love, Noreen
