"...faith is the evidence of things unseen" that's the part I don't like. When you think of faith it's difficult to remember the unseen. The unseen is the hardest part. Think about it...
the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid
Available facts? Hardly available. Information to validate a belief? That's just it. You have to believe wether you see it or not. Faith...that's the evidence. Your faith is the indicator. You believing says it all. Closing your eyes is the only way to make it. I have learned that I am too effected by what I see.
What I see? Hard times, empty pockets, distance from destiny.
What I know? God is faithful. So, basically. You don't like what you see? Because what you see is not what you get...it's just what you got.
My advice? If what you see is gripping your trust by the throat and choking your ability to believe... close your eyes :)
