Faith convinces us of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1)
Sometimes I have more faith in the unseen “oh no’s” — the experiences I dread, the what-ifs that figuratively take me out at the knees.
I open my eyes wide … peer into the darkness … and see more darkness looming ahead of me. My faith, my hope, is shrouded in fear and doubt — two wearisome travel companions along life’s road.
I’ve learned it’s best to admit I’ve lost my way in the darkness. To close my eyes — all the way. No peeking. And while I’m at it, I stop listening to all the voices that tell me I might as well give up and stay lost because, hey, no one’s coming looking for me. No one’s even noticed I’m missing.
Once I’m no longer trying to find my way out of the dark, I see the light I’ve been looking for all along. The glimmer of a forgotten truth. Or I hear the whisper of affirmation, of love, directing me toward hope. Toward freedom. Toward the place I always want to be: the “wide open spaces of His grace.” (Romans 5:1-2 The Message)
