Some call me an idealist, a dreamer. I believe that true love conquers all. I believe every person can be restored from the worst of places and that no one is beyond saving. I believe that in the end there will be justice for every injustice on this Earth unaccounted for. I believe all peoples can be reconciled and that true peace is possible. When I look at people, I do not see what is, but what could be. I dream for the future and cast vision for the lost and broken.
But I'm not an idealist.
I'm a realist. It's just that my reality includes a just, beautiful, glorious, powerful, merciful, everlasting, good, and humble God who can and will do all things for the good of those who love Him. Everyday I am faced with the reality of the cross and the power now present in me to renew and transform a world which has largely lost its way. There used to be a time when I wondered where God was, but these days I can't find where He is not.
I am a realist, only reality looks a bit different with a God for whom nothing is impossible. It just takes a little faith and your entire world starts working for you rather than against you. There is a God in heaven, a God like no other, and His name is Yahweh.
