"But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image
from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
2Corinthians 3:18
 
Step Back ~ Look Beyond
 
A landscape artist does not always stand at an arm's length
from his canvas. They must not limit their attention to the isolated details of what they're doing.
So, occasionally, they step back to view their work
from a distance. They need to see how their thousands of small brushstrokes fit together to produce an overall result.
 
Likewise, our perspective on life is much improved
if sometime we can step back and see it whole.
We can become so occupied with its daily brushstrokes
that we have no real perception of the whole scene
we are painting on the canvas of the ongoing years.
Our attentions can be so consumed by
the requirements of daily living that we have little
awareness of the dimensions and directions of life itself.
 
Step back from the canvas a little,
and try to see the picture whole.
Look beyond the varied episodes of our daily doings
and see the glory of it all.
Look beyond the brushstrokes to see the art
which the brushstrokes have made and are making!
