When we think of those hopes that have yet not materialized, those prayers not yet answered and the victories not yet experienced in our lives; we must see them from God's completed perspective: that those elusive hopes already exist though we do not see them yet in the timeline of our lives. Thus we never have to live in the sense of incompleteness, we never have to despair the lack, the disappointment, the searing pain of loss. Just look at your life from God's overview; that the answer stands present, completed, and waiting for you down the road and around a corner in God's plan. Don't quit, don't withdraw. Move forward step by step through the difficulties and visualize the completion of the thing - for the day will come when you meet face to face and faith will turn to sight!
