Perspective

I read this quote by Amy Carmichael the other day. Love the truth and simplicity of it.

“We say, then, to anyone who is under trial,

give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth.

Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky,

or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound.

Give Him time and, ……as surely as dawn follows night,

there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.”

– Amy Carmichael
Faith is perspective. It is belief. And sometimes a little stepping back to get some breathing room can do wonders for fueling faith, because in stepping back, we can better see the Wonder of the One we have faith in.  It’s not about faith in faith. It’s about faith in Him, the One True God.
The Heavens declare His wonder…and when I share in the wonder, well, my view changes my worldview, my worship changes my worry, my wonder changes the One I’m focusing on.  Yeah, am thinking Amy Carmichael had it so right when she wrote the above quote.   A little stepping back and looking up and looking out can awake in my heart “a certainty that cannot be shaken…”  Actually, for me, sometimes that certainty is shaken…but the good news is My God never is. Love that. When I show up, He is already there.  Just a few reminders to my self …

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Hebrews 11;1
