Beautiful Renewal

We couldn't see what was on the other side of this bridge!!
Turns out it was a soccer and baseball field😐

We couldn't see what was on the other side of yesterday's election!
Turns out, more of the same!😐

We cannot see what waits on the other side of Time/life!
How that turns out depends on Who we choose to serve/obey here!

Man is NOT our hope! Hallelujah.
We do not need to become bitter or live in fear or defeat!
For what is seen is temporal but what is unseen is eternal!
So once more, the verse I shared the other day;
Therefore we do not lose heart. 
Though outwardly we are wasting away, 
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us
 an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 
18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,
 since what is seen is temporary, 
but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Cor. 4:16-18

From here to there sight cannot tell
What waits to fill the gap between
But because This is temporal
We fix our eyes on the Unseen

Lord, help us choose to be thankful
For Who we know will never fail
Where what is seen is temporal
And what is not, You will unveil

Therefore, then we do not lose heart
Though outwardly we waste away
The confidence that You impart
Renews our spirits day by day
