Faith is a double-edged sword. On one hand are physical, earthly things I love and can see. On the other hand are spiritual, heavenly things I hope for but can not see. (There’s earthly faith -the familiar kind- and then there’s heavenly faith that transcends time and works miracles.)
The goal is to let go of what I know and have faith in having them still. Promises, ordinances, and covenants require faith and belief. Faith separates the herd because my faith is either earthly or heavenly. Just because it is unimaginable or unfathomable doesn’t mean it won’t be.
(A bird sitting on a branch is not afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not in the branch, but in her own wings.) I’m not afraid of the world, because my trust is not in the world but in the Lord.
