Seeing God



My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you.
Job 42:5 NIV
I admit I once lived by rumors of you;
now I have it all firsthand -
from my own eyes and ears!
Job 42:5 The Message

I love the reflected image of green limbs against blue sky as seen in the aged glass panes of this window. Rather than stand in front of the window for the photograph, I stepped off-center then aimed the camera upward. A perceptively different view was revealed. The rippled character of the old glass, the angle of light careening the image back to the eye, created an additional unexpected, new way of seeing the window and it’s reflected foliage. 
I found Job’s story had elements similar to this photographic experience. Ultimately Job had to accept “seeing” God from an unfamiliar perspective. Grasping God’s omnipotent ways requires us to stand in a different place, accept the unexpected, and look at events from the unique vantage point of God’s lens. 


So grateful to have had you visit with me here and comment on your thinking.
Now join me as I wander on over to enjoy the the photos and musings of others at:

    I so love it when God shows me His truth from a different perspective...allowing me to see a greater depth of His heart of love...
