Can You See the Invisible?
Invisible. Something so strong in the invisible is moving around and felt by us these days.
More than anytime in our lives, we need to be able to see the invisible in the current worldwide pandemic.
Things usually get worst before they get well.
It can be easy for us to miss the promise or blessings behind our present sufferings. Even globally.
Our health. Our economy. Our family. Our future.
What do you see, my fellow traveler, what do you see?
I have one counsel for you - start learning to see the invisible.
You can not always control what goes on outside. Our circumstances, and so forth.
But you can control what goes on inside. And that includes the power to see the invisible in the outside.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson put it, “Nothing external to you has any power over you.”
That is, only if you can see the invisible, may I say.
You do not lose heart when you can see the invisible.
“Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison ...”
“ ... while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
— 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
