heavenly eyes.

i long to see things the way God looks down and sees them, so that i could serve better.

i long to know the compassion God feels when we hurt, so that i could better love others.

i long to see the bigger picture, so that i may approach every circumstance with heaven in mind.

i am confident that God’s hands are all over this.

i know that God knows exactly what He’s doing.

and i know that if i did know the bigger picture, it wouldn’t build my strength, hope, or faith in the only being that has truly never let me down, left me, or ever stopped pursuing me.

and i’m thankful that times like these remind us that nothing and no one in our life, is ours. not your mother, father, husband, wife, or  your children. they are gifts. temporary gifts. and God knows when He is glorified more when we have them and when we don’t. sometimes this can smack us right in the face. and it hurts. it hurts very badly. but it also keeps us kingdom minded.
