If you see more then what’s in front of you
You might see more of heavens view.
It’s kind of ironic that I’d choose this song for our SOTD.
Today doesn’t feel beautiful.
I mean, the sun is shining where I am at the moment; but if I’m being honest, life is anything but blue skies and butterflies right now.
We’re facing scary things. Giants, mountains, aches, worries and other challenges. It feels impossible sometimes. It seems like there’s just no way.
But as much as that FEELS like reality, the truth is, we’re loved by the God who created this universe. A world of minute details and intricate systems.
As we stand here, we are spinning around in space at 1000 miles per hour, in perfect safety, thanks to something we call gravity. A scientific principle so reliable and dependable we call it a “law.”
I was talking with my daughter about this last week. If we could see this ride, we’d never get on. Stepping onto the earth, would feel dangerous and unsafe, like jumping onto an escalator moving 500 times faster than we’re used to. (Avg escalator speed is less than two miles per hour.)
In truth, we’re not going to fly off the planet. But if we could see it spinning as we stepped on, our minds wouldn’t believe it. We’d have a hard time trusting in the gravitational force that we couldn’t see, explain, or really even comprehend.
I think that’s part of why Jesus tells us to fix our eyes, not on our circumstances, or the swirling seas, but on Him.
I’m filing this one under #NoteToSelf.
It seems we go through seasons where we need constant reminders of God’s promise that he will never leave us or forsake us. Sometimes it seems so hopeless and we feel so alone.
But no matter how dark these days and nights may be, God’s Word says that today is beautiful.
“This is the day the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24 (NLT)
As we hurdle through the time, space and challenges of each day, there’s another truth we can absolutely rely on: God’s got this.
He is able.
He is on our side.
Today IS beautiful.
