Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what God has ready for those who love Him. I first heard the song “Eye Has Not Seen” over 20 years ago at a funeral for an aunt. Initially I thought “I don’t know this song, how am I going to sing it?” As it turned out, I found it beautiful, easily learned, and it spoke volumes.
Today’s second reading 2 Corinthians 4:13 - 5:1 has this same message – we don’t know what God has in store for us in eternity or in this life, but we know it will be far beyond our imaginations!
Whatever pain, sorrow, misfortune, etc., we have will cease to exist. We are going from darkness into light. Just as we welcome the sun after a stretch of cloudy weather, this new light will be with us for eternity. This is God’s promise to us.
We know, we believe, we wait. . .
