Seeing Isn’t Believing

How many of us can attest to experiences that, though we know these events are true, though we have seen them with our own eyes, still the reality of the event is surreal, almost like it didn’t happen.  The death of a loved one can be like this.  Though you know that people die each day, when your loved one who has been in your life for so many years dies, it can seem like it just isn’t true, even if you have seen their body after death.  The birth of a baby can be the same way.  You know babies are born each day, yet when your baby is born it can feel as if it didn’t really happen.

If natural events, events that everyone agrees to that they take place, can seem surreal to you, even when you have witnessed them, why should you be surprised when spiritual things, things you have not seen with physical eye, feel as if they’re not true?  Shouldn’t, in a sense, we expect this to happen at times?  If you can doubt things you have seen, don’t be surprised when the unseen seems far away.  Don’t be overly alarmed when this happens and at the same time don’t be content to remain there the rest of your life.  Learn from the natural world. Truth is truth, no matter how it feels at the time. Trust God and His Word no matter how you feel.

    I definitely have found that it often takes some time for large changes in life to sink in for me. Like having a baby, as you mentioned. Sometimes it is almost like you are just gliding through the process of things and observing them as somebody not involved. Interesting how that happens. Then all of the sudden you sort of “wake up” (maybe it is not always so “of a sudden”) and you are aware of the magnitude of what has taken place.
