What do you see?

Before you read, take a good long hard look at this picture. A fjord in Denmark taken by my daughter this weekend. What do you see?20140608-160154-57714970.jpgWhen I look at this picture, I see my life right now. Blue skies above me with a few clouds in the distance. I’m not worried about what they might hold and just want to relax in the here and now. Though there are some obstacles I need to watch out for, it’s mostly clear and smooth where I’m standing. I’m confident enough with my self and my life to wade out into my future, but I’m keeping the safe shoreline of what I know in my sight. The sun and the Son is shining on me, warming me where I stand… even if I’m wading through cold water.

I have David Crowder singing in my head and, for me, it fits perfectly with this picture.

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t find peace
There’s no end to amazing grace

Take me in with Your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go
Never leave my side

I am
Holding on to You
I am
Holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on
I am.

What do you see when you look at this picture??

Listen to Crowder’s I Am
