Faith vs. Sight
by Sheila Walsh
We are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our strength, and with all our mind. Heart, soul, strength, and mind. What does that look like for you and me right now? We love with our heart, even when it's broken. We love with our soul, even when our humanity wrestles against our situation. We love with our strength, even when it's almost gone. We love with our mind, even when we don't understand. I'm not living by faith if I have an answer to everything. If I understand everything God does or doesn't do, then all I need to love Him with is my mind. We're called to love Him with more.
God is good and we can trust Him even when we don't understand where we are in life. As the great preacher Charles Spurgeon wrote, "And when we cannot trace his hand, we must trust His heart."
