And I’ve now lived long enough to know “it,” the dreams I dream, the calling I answered, the life I want, will most certainly not look anything like what I think, what I expect, what I demand. But it will be lovely, it will be good, it will be right. And it will be what God wants. And even though it may not look like it, it will be exactly what I want. Because the things I really want, no eye can see. That’s the problem with looking at dreams with human vision. We see different from God. He measures eyesight by the size of our faith. He measures faith by steps of obedience.
Today I remember where I see obstacles, God sees opportunities. Where I see looming mountains, God sees growing faith. Where I see impossible circumstances, God sees possible miracles. And where I see certain death, God sees new life. A better life than I can ever imagine.
The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24
