Mist below the hills

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: PERSPECTIVE

I took the above photograph on my walk this morning and to me it sums up this word perspective!

Down below in the misty flats I am often fumbling around, seeking direction, not sure what I am supposed to be doing/thinking. My perspective is limited to what I see in front of me, my situations, my struggles, my circumstances.

But up high above the mist you gain a whole new perspective! You see the bigger picture! You see that there is a whole different surround from the one you see in the misty flats.

So today my prayer is that the Lord will ‘make my feet like hinds feet’ and that He will set me secure upon the high places, where I may see Him more clearly, love Him more dearly and follow Him more nearly. Where my perspective is influenced by eternity, and where my sight is clear unhampered by the mist of circumstances.

The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.”

Habakkuk 3:19

  1. Fiona, How lovely that you can catch that view on a morning walk! I think that is my big takeaway from current circumstances. My perspective is too small when perched on little me. God’s, however, is the One I should unrelentlessly seek. Thanks for your words of wisdom today.

  2. Hi! I’m visiting for the first time from FMF. Such a pretty view on your walk! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I often focus on the temporal instead of the eternal. A good reminder for today.

  3. Down among the dead men,
    down the bloody vale,
    way back in the days when
    I thought might would prevail,
    I learned that there was something
    that could overcome
    the heavy-beating dun wing,
    the leaden marching drum.
    One day among the embers
    I heard a baby cry,
    and then was held so tender
    by a great big scary guy,
    who, putting rifle on the sling,
    to child of hope, began to sing.

  4. So true! I’ve heard that people who live at the tops of the tallest skyscrapers have to call down and check the weather on the bottom floor because it can be sunny up top and raining down below.
