What my Eyes Have Never Seen


Lately, life has flown by and I’ve not made much time to write, but my thoughts have been revolving around all that I have seen in my lifetime.  I’ve seen first hand multiple miracles performed by God in my life and lives of my family.  When Brantyn was burned and then completely healed, when Silas wasn’t expected to live much less be normal but now he is the perfectly healthy picture of a boy.  Many times financially when there was no way on paper that our bills would be paid, but somehow it worked out every single time.  So many answered prayers, souls saved and Holy Ghost filled meetings when God’s presence was beyond a shadow of a doubt so real you could almost see it.  I worked for a period of time in a hospital with patients that had tried to commit suicide.  Multiple times the doctors had no explanation for how they had survived.  One man had shot himself in the temple, the bullet lodged on the opposite side of his head.  The path of the bullet on the scans showed damage that should have severed and destroyed his optic nerve but somehow it was perfectly intact and his vision and hearing still in great condition.  He should have been dead if you’d saw the medical records, but God had spared his life as well as his senses.  Mutliple others had drank or eaten  substances known to be fatal in such high doses but they also survived.  People survived jumps and falls from insane heights and waterfalls even.  I’ve even saw the effects of drugs and demonic possession of adolescents and teens, but God spared them. 
I’ve had the privilege to see many natural wonders and sights that God has made.  I’ve visited the powerful Niagara Falls, stood atop Mount Mitchell, walked through Appalachain Mountains, splashed in waves at the Outer Banks, drove through the Everglades, saw white sandy beaches, visited Amish country, and many waterfalls and canyons.  Then I can’t help but think of the things that I could see, if I were to travel, such as the amazing Northern Lights, Grand Canyon, Seven Wonders, Great Barrier Reef, Ireland, penguins in Antarctica, Alaska, Painted Desert, Israel and the many holy sites there.  I could go on and on about wonderful things that my eyes could possibly see. 
Out of ALL these things, and even if you could combine the splendor and majesty of them all, none would even begin to compare to the things our eyes can’t see!  The Bible says eye hath not seen, ear hath not heard and that it has not entered into the heart of man what things He has prepared for us.  We are not be able to imagine, nor could our fleshly eyes possibly envision, what our place in heaven will look like. How glorious will the gate be? Or the street of Gold? Or the millions there that will be singing praises to the King? The saints that have already gone? Our heavenly bodies? Most glorious of all will be our Saviour!  How wonderful to finally see His face, feel His hands, kiss His feet!  These things that we can’t see will be the things that will always matter most! The most important things and the only thing that matters at all is what we do with Jesus, we must believe in Him that we cannot physically see!
