Faith glasses

I keep returning these past few weeks to the passage, Hebrews 11:8...
By faith Abraham....obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. (As quoted in Streams in the Desert)
Awww, the proverbial 'faith without sight'. To say yes when asked if you would go where God takes you, sends you, puts you, is one thing. But, when your spouse is taken while your children still need raising, you get the news that cancer is back for a third time, or your God told you wait, when you were just so sure He was going to give you the thumbs up...we just may start to feel confused, perhaps even gypped. Why did we sign up for this? Or better yet, this IS NOT what you we signed up for at all! 
Blind faith is not just a saying, but the very definition of faith. These past 4 weeks I have been mulling the over. And true to His unchanging character, God still is there. In the pain, the loneliness, the set back, the confused. 
A friend sent me the link to the song Thy Will by Hillary Scott a few weeks ago. The words seriously are amazing! And a perfect reminder that His ways are not our ways, but it's definitely the way that I desire...once I get over myself, that is;). Like Abraham, I want to be obedient to God, because He is always faithful to fulfill what He promises.
