God in all things

This is Not Our Home

This photo was taken in Jamaica at Galina Breeze looking out over the sea on the night we arrived. Things can look so different at night. In large part, because we do not see in color at night. But there also a drop in depth perception. Yet another example of things looking different from different perspectives.

There is a current song by Laura Story that speaks to viewing things in our lives from a different perspective. I think the lyrics are very powerful:

What if your blessings come through raindrops?

What if Your healing comes through tears?

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near?

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?

We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we’d have faith to believe

When friends betray us

When darkness seems to win

We know that pain reminds this heart

That this is not our home
