Invisibles  . . .

Invisibles are what 

people can't see through! 

They are a veil 

over what we see. 

Your experiences 

are the veils 

you view life through. 

Once relating 

to the experience 

of the veil 

you have your  

key to freedom!

Seeing both in proportion 

to each other 

the challenge and invitation 

is, to see life

through the latticed veil  . . .

Of LOVE.

Love NEVER fails,

Can You See Your Freedom?

Reflection 

Have you ever looked through a lattice or a veil? When looking through any physical barrier, one's vision can be interrupted, or in this case, blurred through a veil. 

When looking through an invisible, depending on what the invisible is, the thing being viewed is influenced by the experience you have had.

Let me explain. If you have a job to do which you are experienced at, no matter how difficult it is you see it as done. The invisible here is the culmination of your experience and no matter how awkward or bad that one is, to you it's done. 

Here's another example. Looking through the compassion in your heart at a genuine homeless person, your response is generally one wanting to help. 

If there have been bad experiences in the past regarding homeless people, the invisible veil one looks through changes. This invisible example, is one which can't be seen through because the negative experience becomes the veil.

When challenged by these situations generally the experience becomes a confrontation by the past experience overriding the compassion you are feeling. In the above poem, the challenge is to allow the experience of Love to continue to become the veil you see everything through. 

Questions 

# - Can you now understand how the experiences we have in life, either good or bad, become the veils we see through?

# - The veils we see life through often become our prejudice and have consequences in our own lives. How can you remove these veils permanently?

# - How could you establish Love to become the veil you see everything through? Check the verse below. 

Jude 20 - 23 Passion 

But you, my delightfully loved friends, constantly and progressively build yourselves upon the foundation of your most holy faith by praying every moment in the Spirit. 21 Fasten your hearts to the love of God and receive the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who gives us eternal life. 22 Keep being compassionate to those who still have doubts

Jude 1:20‭-‬21 NKJV

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
