Finally

You’ve got this. For once, finally, the reality you know you were created to live is yours. You taste it. You see it and smell it and feel it. Maybe not all of it, but enough. Finally, you have moved out of your own way, and you experience who you were created to be. Keep on.

Your goal and the mindset to reach it are clear as crystal. You know what you’re after and the means by which you will get there. Humility. Eyes fixed on the prize. Repeat.

You’re not giving into sudden impulses that derail you.  You’re not thinking about whether or not you “like” what it takes to get there. You’re just doing what it takes because, one thing you do know, it’s worth the work.

Finally, you know it. The desire of your innermost heart is at your fingertips. And the key all along? Belief.

You get it now. Belief comes before proof, not the other way around. But the proof, the experience, it’s not far off.  In fact the experience of belief is often felt in the very next moment.  A stare too far into the future blurs the joy of right now– joy because the believed promises are as good as fulfilled, and a loving God is near.

Finally you get it. What you’ve been after this whole time? It’s been right there all along.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
