Faith, Hope and Love

The other night I was chilling and chatting with Jesus, as I was telling me Jesus about my frustrations with the world today and about the state of holiness in our generation, Jesus rudely interrupted me with a mesmerising vision.

I saw myself hanging on a rope and the sense of fear and confusion washed over me, I was literally sitting in my room scared! for some reason I couldn't control my emotions, Jesus obviously wanted me to see something. I asked him to show me more. In my vision I looked up the rope to see what it was attached to, as I looked up all I saw were dark clouds filling the entire sky. I looked down to see what would await me if i let go and saw the ocean,going absolutely crazy! It looked like it wanted to eat me. At the sight of this I decided to close my eyes and grip my piece of rope tight, as tight as I could. In the vision I had found myself in the middle of a storm, stuck in the middle between fear and confusion not knowing what was going to happen next.

While the clouds continue to gather and darken and while the seas continued to roar I saw in the horizon a glimpse of sunlight which immediately reminded me of
1 Corinthians 13:13 - And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I asked Jesus how the verse and the vision connected and he told me that faith is believing that God holds the other side of the rope even if I cant see him. He told me that hope is the sun and the sun is a promise of a bright day to come and he told me that love is the greatest and my love for God is what kept me holding onto the rope.

We all have tough times in our life we all feel fear and confusion but no matter what happens to the world or us three things will always remain: faith, hope and love. I came around from my vision worshiping Jesus singing the lyrics

I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on,
there will be an end to these troubles but until that day comes.
Still i will praise you, still i will praise you.

p.s I forgave him for rudely interrupting my prayer.
