A Picture Of You And God

You and I need to see ourselves in a much different way. We have a chance each day to re-discover and re-imagine ourselves, if we take the time to look at God first. He speaks to us softly, gently, and reminds us what our lives are all about. The image He reveals to the world, and to us, is far from the familiar one we most often see.

The snapshot we carry around in our minds is lonely and desolate. We are by ourselves, alone in the middle of nowhere, looking up toward heaven. But the picture God shows us is full and complete; we are safe and secure. He is there with us, protecting us, and showing us which direction to go.

When we glimpse the photograph of God with us, we realize that we are never alone. He is always there, in the struggles, as well as the successes. No matter how lost and deserted we may feel at times, the truth is that there are always two figures in the picture. We can see God standing next to us, even though He is unseen by the rest of the world.
