One Good Thing Every Day: March 12, 2013

2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV

For we live by faith, not by sight.

The reading comprehension passage in one of our Test Prep workbooks yesterday focused on echolocation. Echolocation is used by animals and humans with limited sight to locate objects and determine distances. Intrigued, I conducted more research. Sonar is a man-made form of echolocation used for navigation in the sea and in the air. Medical ultrasounds are based on the same principle as they detect internal images within the human body using sound waves.

Later in the day, I encountered 2 Corinthians 5:7 in my Jesus Calling daily reading.  Today, that scripture appeared in my Experiencing God reading. At my first reading, I sensed an immediate resonance between this verse and the topic of echolocation we studied. The echo of the verse this morning confirmed my initial thoughts.

Through my darkest nights and on my brightest days, God’s words resound in my heart and mind. When He speaks, my soul reverberates. My short-sightedness prevents even one step without faith in His vision. I call to Him with prayer, with scripture, with sounds undetectable to the human ear. He responds with the echo of His promises, guiding me the distance of my journey.
