Day 1: Unseen Faith


The chocolate bunny ears are eaten.

The jelly beans have fallen to the bottom of the basket.

Now what?

Do you still hear the words of joy that

HE IS RISEN

or is JESUS being packed away until Christmas?

HE IS RISEN

isn't just an Easter Sunday text.

What gets in the way of living in the

REALITY

that

HE IS RISEN?

UN~SEEING FAITH ~

“Unless I see the nail marks in HIS hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into HIS side, I will not believe” (John 20:25).

Show me. Prove to me.

Give me what I want when I want it

and then I will BELIEVE.

Oh how JESUS RISES to the call~

"Though the doors were locked, JESUS came and stood among them and said,

'Peace be with you!'  Then HE said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; see MY hands.

Reach out your hand and put it into my side.

STOP DOUBTING & BELIEVE'" (John 20: 26-27).

Oh how I wish

JESUS would walk through my door

and show me HIS hands

when I am in the midst of

UN~SEEN FAITH~

when what I want when I want it is not what I am getting

and all that I have is

UN~SEEN FAITH.

But isn't that what FAITH is?

FAITH is UNSEEN

FAITH is WAIT

FAITH is HOPE

FAITH is PEACE

FAITH wouldn't exist unless

HE HAS RISEN once & for all.

Even though we can't touch the nail holes in HIS hands & feet

when DOUBT creeps in,

doesn't

put JESUS back in the grave

because

JESUS HEARS & JESUS LISTENS~

"Then JESUS told him, 'Because you have seen ME, you have believed;

blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed'" (John 20: 29).

JESUS always shows up like HE did to Thomas

because JESUS always hears & answers our cries

meeting us right where we are.

And then HE RISES in our heart as we shout like Thomas did~

"Thomas said to HIM, 'My LORD and MY GOD!'"

Oh may THE RISEN JESUS meet you right where you are in this moment of time

because HE is here~

for the tomb is empty

just as HE said it would be.

UNSEEN FAITH is FAITH~

"Now faith is the certainty of things hoped for, a proof of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1)

"STOP DOUBTING & BELIEVE”

because

even DOUBT can't take away

your

RESTORED RENEWED REALITY

that
