16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.17 For our present troubles are small and wonít last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we donít look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NLT)

We often quote these scriptures; especially verse 17 but you know I have to wonder if we donít miss the best part of it when we fail to look at verse 18. You know life really is about focus and the choices we make about where to look. Do you realize everything that you are able to see today was once part of the invisible world? It was an idea or concept that was once created within the mind of someone. From the car you drive to the computer you are sitting at these were once all part of the invisible world of thoughts and ideas. The world itself was created by the invisible; it was Godís idea and plan for you and me. But he has more planned than we can see from our present position. It is easy to say that but hard to imagine if you are sitting in the middle of a trial today. All we can see is what is right before us. We often struggle with just making it through each day. I want to tell you that unless God calls you home today or the trumpet sounds there is hope for tomorrow and for right now. Nothing you can do will stop time from and tomorrow will come. You will be able to have a fresh start if you will change your focus from what you can see and instead hold onto what you have not yet seen but have been promised. We do it every day. We tell ourselves if I can finish what I am doing I am going to get this. We understand hoping for the future the question is will we apply it to the trials of our lives and hope for the day when what is invisible to us now will be visible and last forever. May you be blessed today and everyday as you walk in the Light of Godís Word.
