The more we imagine a future full of self-sacrificing love, and non-violent relationships the more we'll pull that future into the present. It is a type of time travel! The future belongs to us. What our hearts are set on, what our minds think upon, what our prayers say reveals where our faith lies. Faith makes the things we hope for inevitable. The opposite, of course, is true as well. The more we imagine a future full of violence and domination the more we'll pull that future into the present. Choose your thoughts. Be intentional about what you dream. Pray with expectation. God invents history in interaction with those who will not give up.
