Three Views, One Fact

OH, no, this plane is going to crash into the moon! At least from my view point. I'm down below next to this palm tree. (I was trying to get this neat picture of the moon during daytime and then this airplane flew right into my viewfinder.)

Now from the planes vantage point, the people inside probably don't even see me standing in my front yard waving my camera to the sky. But they can see the moon even better, yet know they aren't headed anywhere near.

Hang with me-the moon, if there was anyone on it, knows for a fact the plane's not gonna' crash into it.

But it sure looks like it to me......

"In Thy light we see light." Palms 36:9

This is how I feel sometimes. My circumstances are going to crash into something horrible, far away. I can see it in my mind's eye and heart.

But from God's vantage point, He knows half of what I imagine will never come to pass.

Lord may Your facts over rule what my worries see.

Excellent, wise post, Karen. I need to trust the Lord's navigational system more than my own.

Very well put. I've always loved the saying, "Perception is reality." I find it is so true in life.
