“If I pulled back the curtain to allow you to view heavenly realms, you would understand much more. However, I have designed you to walk by faith, not by sight.”  -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

This morning my son woke me up with a pat on the back and a loud, Mommy, you can come up now. I had to smile at his choice of words. I immediately pictured Lazarus wrapped up in dead clothes and Jesus calling out to him to rise up and live. Sometimes it seems impossible to come up from underneath the heavy weight of disbelief. But the moment the choice is made, the burden becomes easy and light. The choice comes first, though, and that’s the hard part. If I waited until it felt true, I may have never believed.

So, for what it’s worth, you can come up now. I know you may not choose to, but you can. And that’s all I’ve got today.
