You know the ol saying " You can't see the forest for the trees"? Well, as I was outside with Samps that is exactly what I thought of. Many of you may know where we live. And if you do, you also know we are surrounded by trees. This keeps us from seeing a sunrise or a sunset. Let me say that I am not complaining. Anyway, as Samps was walking around the yard I got to really looking at the sky. And as I did, this is what I saw.....
So as I pondered on this I heard Daddy say, ever so softly, "looks kinda like Me doesn't it?" So I stopped again and thought. Yep you're right. Point here is this: I may not can always see the sunrise or sunset because of the trees. But just because I can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there or isn't happening. Same with Daddy. Just because I can't always see Him or hear Him, doesn't mean He isn't there. He Is. Always has been. Always will be.
Sometimes I just get so busy with life and the busyness of it I just forget to look. Sometimes I let life's frustrations, (which often times seem to be a lot) keep me from looking. Sometimes in this world we live in I often wonder where in the world did You go? I can't see you in all the mess. But that is just my problem. I am looking at the mess. The frustrations. The busyness. And I am not looking for Him. But He is there. Just because the trees were there, it didn't stop the sun from coming up. I just needed to look a little harder and stay a little longer.
