Reaching for What Can’t be Grasped (Guest Post by Abigail)

Belief is what keeps us fighting...and achieving.
Belief is the insanity that, when hope seems far away...keeps us chasing.
Belief is the life force behind dreams...that makes them reality.
Belief is why we can fall flat on our face...and continue, unabashed.

I believe in the Unseen. I chase the purely Experienced. I love the thrill of His mystery.

...and I believe that, at the end of all of this...the only thing left will be Everything that I believed in.

I believe in Hope.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Romans 8:18-25
