From where I stand

January 31, 2020

I close my eyes and sit quietly. A vision comes into focus.

I see a sky, an expansive sky with a few clouds towering in the distance. It is quiet, peaceful, and lightly breezy. I realize as I glance down at a floor of clouds that I am not looking at the sky from the ground. I’m viewing it from up high so that I’m not looking up at the clouds, but looking out at the clouds. In a flash I see how these same clouds appear from the ground: a dark, heavy ceiling of threatening weather, an oppressive unrest that permeates the atmosphere. There isn’t even a hint of that deep heaviness from my current elevated view.

“Perspective is everything. Look at where you’re standing before you accept a thing as true. There is almost always a higher truth to be apprehended if you change your perspective.”

The ancient words of life speak many times about being one with Jesus. It occurs to me that this is a breathtaking invitation: to step out of the limited perspective of humanity and into the limitless wisdom of God where we can truly see as he sees. It is vision beyond anything our mortal eyes can comprehend, but well within the scope of souls bound to the breath of eternity.

May it be so.

    There you are. This is beautiful! I’ve been meditating on His perspective and asking for His eyes. Thank you, friend.
