Faith can put you at odds with the world around you. Faith can make you feel like you’ve set out on a journey to a spot that is eternally eluding you. Just out of sight on the horizon…
Having Faith can often put you in a tent, feeling like an immigrant in a place that God promised would be yours. And there are times where this feeling, this other-ness, makes you want to close up the doors of your tent, stare at the wall, and let go of hope.
But having faith in God means that no matter how tightly you have closed the doors of your tent, God’s vision for this world is still out there on the horizon.
Having faith means looking forward as Abraham did, and seeing the unseeable things that God only God had seen before.
