We live these daily lives in the constant tension of already and not yet:
Already a student, not yet graduation; already graduated, not yet employed, already engaged, not yet married; already pregnant, not yet a parent; already diagnosed, not yet healed; seeds already planted, but the fruit not ready to be plucked; Already the veil has been torn, but it is not yet lifted.
We live in these tensions, knowing that this specific moment matters, that everything matters, but it is not this moment that we long for. Our broken hearts can’t help but long for the beauty, the finality, the forever, of a resurrected world.

One thought on “Practicing Imperfect Hope (at the Mudroom today…)”
“God is the God of promise. Faith involves trusting the promises of God. God makes a promise; faith believes it, hope anticipates it, patience quietly waits for it.” Nicky Gumbel
