The Way I See It… ~ July 11

The Way I See It…

Love is blind

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy. 1Peter 1:8

What a perfect description of how I feel about God; I haven’t seen Him, but I love Him and believe in Him, and as a result I am inexpressibly, gloriously joyful. My faith makes me happy!

My faith is a simple faith based on simple things, and I try not to complicate God, and what He desires from me. Sometimes, I get all wound up trying to explain something, and I get to going in a circle. When that happens, I usually go back to old faithful—love.

God is love, and love is faith. Faith is love, and love is God. Any way you want to mix it, those three ingredients will bring you peace. And to me, peace is the goal we seek while we wander this planet.

When you set out to build something—a house, for instance—you will achieve the best results if you have a set of plans to refer to as you build. Architects and engineers put their knowledge into the plans so the house can be constructed soundly and beautifully. Likewise, if we follow God’s plan we will help to build His house.

Love Him, believe in Him, have faith in Him, follow His plan and be filled with inexpressible and glorious joy.
