We fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen (2 Corinthians 4:18).

So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

It is a really timely message, on fixing our gaze on things that cannot be seen. I really need it. As end of year approaching, the urge to look back on hopes and dreams that are promising in the beginning of the year is getting stronger. Like it or not, at the end of the year, i have to look back and reflect. And yeah, face it. That not much happened on that hopes and dreams.

Interestingly in this message, we are asked to fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. Yeah, I could definitely see that most of my hopes and dreams are now in the bin. But I can testify that there are a lot, other than those hopes and dreams, I actually experienced, enjoyed and embraced during this year. Eph. 3:20 said that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. I really dont know why, or what is wrong, or what have I missed that most of my hopes and dreams are now in the bin. But, whoa, dont I also had things that I never ask or even imagine! Talking about blessings! What is it for me to complain?

It’s 12 Days before Christmas. I should have a better attitudes towards hopes and dreams to the true meaning of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me: A Partridge in a Pear Tree.
