So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but
what is unseen is eternal.

~* 2 Corinthians 4:18 *~

What do you see most clearly today?
Is it what is seen or what is unseen?
No matter our belief system,
we ultimately have to trust what we
can't see.

Even the most atheistic scientists trust
gravity, breathe air, and depend upon
principles they cannot see until these
realities produce results in the tangible
world of human perception.
But as Christians, we don't believe the seen
world is any more real as the unseen world.
In fact, most of the seen world is subject
to death, disease, disaster, decay, disorder,
and death. I don't know about you, but if
it isn't any more permanent than that, it's
not going to be very real for any of us for
very long. I want to hang on to something
that allows me to look past the seen and to
find my Father who is unseen. He is the one
who guarantees the unseen!

Eternal Father and God of all peoples,
help me see more clearly the spiritual, eternal,
and real world of the unseen.
I am not seeking novelty, nor am I on some
quest for the bizarre.
I only want to know you, your truth, and your
character so I may more appropriately display
them to others and help them come find you in
the world of the unseen.
Please grant me greater success at reaching
others, to your glory.
In the name of Jesus I pray.
