I stare at the blankness on my computer screen, deciding whether to write or not. With the prompting and challenge of my husband….I write. Real. It can take two forms, seen and unseen. When you are a stage IV breast cancer patient, the real that is seen, is one that I don’t like. Not at all. My brother knows I don’t like to talk about this real. Which is fine. He is right. Sometimes I will open up, but only to a select few.
How many of us are truly real? When someone asks us how we are doing, most of us will say, “Oh, fine. How are you?” When in reality, the true real gets hidden deep inside. Inside a place where only Jesus, husbands, sometimes brothers, and certain friends will ever know.
The real that is unseen is the one that I like. It’s my faith in God. I can’t see my faith, or God, but…I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, they…..are both….real. It’s my faith in God that gets me through.
Day by day,
Moment by moment,
One step at a time.
It’s this real that changes my focus. It’s a real that takes my focus away from the every day hard and onto a power that is greater than my darkest of days. If you don’t like the real that is seen, focus on the unseen. He will never leave you. He will never forsake you. In the moments of loneliness when the silence is so deafening that all you can hear is the ticking of the clock, turn to Him. Reach out to Him, He will take your hand, He has been right there waiting for you all along. He is what is truly real.
