Faith means that although life does not appear to be turning out the way we had hoped, we believe that God's hidden will is being done on earth as it is in heaven. So we continue to endure, love, serve, and worship. We resist the temptation to turn bitter, seek revenge, view the world cynically, or whine about how hard life is, even though these temptations are as natural to us as hunger pains and fatigue. In short, we train our eyes to see signs of God's redemptive work. We wait patiently for God's will to be accomplished. ~Jerry Sittser, Discovering God's Will (aka The Will of God as a Way of Life)
