Faith in His Perspective

The other day Mike and I were talking of how life gets harder as we get older because more and more people around us get sick, suffer loss, and face hardship. Of course, this is our view here on this earth.

Our limited perception.

Twenty-one years ago, at the beginning of our marriage, I fervently prayed for both of us to have eternal vision. That prayer has not changed though the motive behind the prayer has. I pray it now to get through these more difficult days when our loved ones and friends face such challenging and grave circumstances. I pray it as I face my own losses and my hope and fear for others.

I think I write in order to help me believe, so I just want to encourage us today, a day I myself need encouraging to know beyond knowing our Father (Papa) God has our “back”. He has not lost control. He wants the very best for us of which only He knows because only He has 20/20 eternal perspective.

Nothing takes the Lord of our Life by surprise.

He loves us more than we can fathom.

How has He demonstrated His faithfulness to you?

Tomorrow we’ll look at His faithfulness to Mary of Nazareth as she stood at the foot of her dying son.

Faith my friends. Faith.

Much grace and peace,


Then I called on the name of the Lord: “O Lord, save me!”
The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of
The Lord protects the
when I was in great need,
He saved me.

Be at rest once more, O my
soul, for the Lord has been
good to you.
(Psalm 116:4-7)
