Where To Look

Eleven days ago we had a lunar eclipse and I have seen some beautiful photos of this striking event of the sky but…

Lunar Eclipse Sunset 1…I was watching the sun set that evening…

Lunar Eclipse Sunset 2

…in the opposite direction…

Lunar Eclipse Sunset 3

…equally striking, yet different…

Lunar Eclipse Sunset 4

Where are you looking; what do you see; are there signposts you’re missing (thanks Shane)?

We don’t all have to look in the same direction at the same time, or all of the time, or at all – some of the time.

 

What I Learned or Was Reminded of Today

In discussions today during the ‘Growth Group’ I am part of, these things were mentioned:

We have a choice in how we wait for things

We can have an ‘earthly’ view (look at everything in relation to the present) or eternal view

We can – or do we – look back with hindsight

Focus on side-tracks can lead to deception/being deceived

Intensity may increase near to the end/delivery

A seed planted, has to have died first

Justice should be taken very seriously

The hard and painful stuff will have an end, but He who is absolute truth will not

Pay attention to the signs

Look with and not through the eyes (Michael Card’s words)
