Yesterday I would have been content to hide under the covers wishing the world and all of its complications away. But somehow this seemed wrong. We're told to face our problems head on, be brave. I felt guilty about wanting this bit of respite until a friend, a fellow blogger, gave me a different perspective in her beautifully written, 'A Season of Harvest.' She pointed me to this scripture:
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. (Isaiah 26:20)
So what I needed to do was, in fact, biblically ok. (Read her blog for more- It's really fantastic!)
I was blessed with another friend today that pointed me in the right direction as well. Isn't God amazing how he orchestrates these "chance" meetings? This friend was able to take me out of my present situation, away and above it. By pointing me back towards Jesus I was given not just a new perspective, but the right one: His.
One day -hallelujah by and by- I'll fly away... the problems of this world left behind... Oh what a perspective that will be!
