The words in my favorite worship song "Tear Down the Walls" by Hillsong United cut me right to the core..."I don't need to see it to believe it."
They inspire me. They remind me that I don't need to see Christ to believe in Christ. I don't need to see God to know that He's at work in and around me. I don't need to see Tony in heaven to know that he is in whole, unbroken, and complete in heaven. I don't need to see my what is in my future to believe that the One who holds my future has it all in His capable hands.
I just don't need to see it to believe it.
I live that out by clinging to verses of 2 Corinthians 4:16-18:
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
I just want to live for the unseen.
