“Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.”
Matthew 8:13

 


We walk a fine line between belief and faith. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things unseen. You don't have to see it to believe it. You have to believe it to see it. It is that unshakable knowledge that something exists that enables you to accept the unseen. We gather the invisible ethers into substance and deliver it through the eyes of faith.

For nearly five years we lived with the aid of a non-profit agency and their oversight into our lives. It ensured that we had a roof over our heads and kept us from living on the street. In June we broke those chains. We weren't sure how it would happen, but we knew a place of our own was out there somewhere. Fast forward to today, we have our own place. We intend to rent to own this house. It is our first real home. It isn't very big, but we don't need it to be. We have learned to pare things down. It took faith to get us to this place and faith will lead us through.

Too often we see with physical eyes. We neglect the unseen. What is created was once a thought held in mind. As we know, thoughts held in mind produce after their kind. Many of the great inventors held onto concepts until they could see them manifest into tangible reality. That is what faith does.

As a writer, I see with my mind on a continuous basis. Only when I put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard do I manifest my unseen desires into tangible reality. I continually seek out new ways to manifest the desires of my heart. I hold onto my faith and the image held in my mind until I see it with spiritual eyes.

That is what faith is. It is a knowing that defies explanation. When we see with spiritual eyes we don't have to see with our physical eyes in order to manifest our heart's desire. That is what I challenge you to do today. Put aside those things that blind, or bind you. Open up your spiritual eyes. Go, let it be done for you according to your faith.
