The View From The Top

Sometimes...

...there are moments when God allows me a moment to look back over the path that I have been on...

...the one that I have muddied with my tears...

...the one that I have stained with my heart's blood...

...the one that I have complained about at every turn...

...the one that I have doubted at every twist...

...the one that I have even dared to hate...

...sometimes He stops moving and puts His arm around my shoulders as He covers my eyes. 

He turns me around and tells me to simply breathe as He pulls His hand back...

and as my eyes survey the vast plate of nature's valley before me,

I realize His command to breathe was literal because my lungs freeze at the sheer beauty of the path I didn't want to take...



How can my soul NOT bow down in humbled praise to the Maker of a path such as this??

Your writing always moves me! I relate to every single word on this post!

BTW, I read your comment over at you-know-where and it was excellent - not the situation but how you expressed yourself. I have told you before but I am telling you again. You are gifted!

Yes, sometimes the Lord does cover our eyes, so we can appreciate the view all the more when they are opened. Good word dear one. Beautiful picture!

Beautiful. To really appreciate all He has given us is to discover the greatest of peace and joy, I think!
