5 Minute Friday - See

Joining Lisa Jo and the girls for 5 Minute edits, no re-writes and love those that came before you..


God is asking me to see things a little different lately.  See past what is visible and let the unseen settle in. Perhaps I am more able now, to trust what I do not lay my eyes on and see with His eyes....with my hearts eyes.  Maybe I can not get so frustrated when I don't see anything happening, yet I can believe in the work being done in the unseen.  Maybe I can persevere a little better, while He works in places that are hidden, waiting to be seen at the appointed time...God's time.  Maybe I am able to see Him in my days, in my words, in my thoughts, in my sadness.  I see needs differently than I did before.  I see His provision in the trials and the frustrations.  I see His goodness...I see this path that has been carved through my heart and I know that He is here.  Faith is to hope in things unseen.  Do I dare risk it?  Even now?  Especially now?  I would have to say with a deep sigh, yes.  Because I have new eyes.  Eyes to see, ears to hear His voice.  Thankful.


  1. It can be so hard to see the "behind the scenes" can't it? I wrote about a similar topic this morning as well! :)

  2. I have been spending a lot of time reflecting on 2 Corinthians 4: 18 lately and your words just hit the nail on the head. So beautiful, thanks for sharing at FMF this morning.

  3. I think to see beyond the visual is something He is calling us all to. Yet it is so hard to walk in the unknown. I pray that my trust will grow and that I will learn to see the unseen
