One Constant

This is a photo of the Yellowstone River after it has gone through the canyon. It looks dramatically different here as compared to the bottom of the canyon or feeding out of Yellowstone Lake.

As we go through our lives, it is likely that different people will see us differently. That doesn’t necessarily mean we have significantly changed; maybe our circumstances have. One thing is constant: how God sees us.

Trust

This photo is from our trip to Glacier NP 3 years ago. This was on the Ptarmigan trail. Like most hikers, we were willing to follow the trail with only a vague idea of where it was heading. This particular trail heads to a tunnel which you cannot see until you are practically just a few yards from it. Despite not being able to see exactly where the tunnel was, we were confident we would make it to the other side of the ridge.

And so it is with our walk with God. We need to trust that the “tunnels“ will be exactly where we need them.

First Reactions

This is a photo of Bear Lake, which suits on the Utah/Idaho border. The drive there from Salt Lake City is very scenic but full of twists and turns. I remember coming around a corner and seeing the lake. It was a cloudless day (two days before this photo was taken) and it was striking how blue the water looked.

It makes me wonder what reaction the Israelites had when they first saw the promised land, a land “flowing with milk and honey.” God’s goodness is hard to fully appreciate!

The Path

This photo was taken during a hike in the Virgin Islands National Park last year. if you look closely you can see the path going forward; notice how it passes close to the edge of a sharp drop off (near the middle right in the photo).

I often write about hiking on a path as a metaphor for the paths that we follow in our lives. This photo certainly illustrates the dangers that we encounter in life, particularly if we do not keep our eyes properly focused on the path ahead.
