“The eternal perspective is the ability to see all of lifefrom God’s point of view and
have what you see affect how you live in the present.
the eternal perspective is the ability to walk by faith
in God’s Word.”
by Catherine Martin
A Heart To See Forever:
Embrace the promise of the eternal perspective
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
This part sure is not one of sorrow but a jubilant one! It needs an encore! I wanted to jump up last week . . . but, I probably would have been the only one! To have such hope . . . to know without a doubt that someday, what we do have faith in, what we cannot see, will become reality. We will see Jesus face to face. Tears will be wiped away. There will be endless joys and awe with no more sorrows, pains . . . no more death. And we do want this day hastened! To be reunited with our loved ones . . . to sit at Jesus’ feet.
But for now, as the author writes above, we do walk in faith – so much of it unseen. We cannot understand why His ways are not our ways . . . but someday, the puzzle pieces will fit together, and we will see from eternities perspective, how through our perseverance and glorifying God through our lives, it was worth it all.
Someday it will be forever jubilant!
Someday my faith shall be sight!
