Abstract ideas are not material
As they are theoretical,
But they identify and understand
With moral dimensions that are practical.
Like logic which is abstract
And conceptual but true;
Is our identity in Jesus Christ
When our nature is renewed.
An invisible concept
But manifested outwardly,
Is faith when it’s administered
And acted upon accordingly.
God’s attributes are invisible
But so clearly we can see,
His hand in all creation
And how it all has come to be.
Love is an emotion
It is true but out of sight,
But felt by the heart and is in our actions
As it manifests God’s light.
Invisible are our emotions
And our intellect as well,
But they’re evident and based on reality
Since in our soul they dwell.
God is invisible
But He’s real as the air we breath;
Like the wind that gently strokes our skin
When the eyes of our heart believe.
