“…now faith is confidence in what we hope for,

and assurance about what we do not yet see.”

Hebrews 11:1

I love that verse. And more than that, I love the truth that faith is about what is unseen, but…there are signs all around that can be seen.  Just like Melanie’s reflection in the water, I can see in part…I can see her feet, but there reflecting in the water is the confirmation that there’s a whole lot more to the picture than what I can see.

Praying today for eyes wide open to see the ‘reflections’. To see the signs that point to the truth that God is who He says He is, and that what is seen with our eyes, is only a teeny tiny part of our reality.  Am so  mindful of people going through some really tough  things, and am hopeful that they catch glimpses of the beautiful truth that God is so very present even when we can’t see Him. We might not see Him face to face..but we sure can see signs of His goodness, His truth, His Presence all around. Praying that the reflection of who He is becomes so very visible to those who need to know that they are not alone. It just takes a little tweaking of the vision, a little determination to see beyond what’s seen. It just takes a little faith.

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part;

then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”  

1 Corinthians 13:12

The Daily Post ~ “Reflecting”

DSCN2410Day is done. Love the calm that watching the sun go down brings…almost like there’s permission to stop, slow down, and rest. On a Friday night between the busy-ness of the past week, and the goings of of the weekend ahead, so thankful for the little bit of time right now to just be still. And I love that the verse that says “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10), well, it tells us to ‘be still’ before it tells us to ‘know’. Sometimes the ‘knowing’ comes when we stop ‘going’. And somehow, looking at that sun going down gives me a little time and permission to do just that.
