II Corinthians 5:7 ~ For we live by faith, not by sight.
This week I've been reminded of this over and over again. I've heard the small voice of the Holy Spirit whispering it in my ear as I've struggled with my attitude all week. I've heard it in small reminders of how the Lord provides for us. I've seen it lived out in friends who are missionaries overseas.
Faith and not sight. Faith that believes God will meet all our needs when sight cannot see a light. Faith that knows the Lord is working in our church and community when sight tells me differently. Faith that hopes when sight brings discouragement. Faith that believes God's hand is in our circumstances when sight feels His absence.
So, this week as I count my blessings I am remembering that I live by faith and not by sight.
