Depth Perception

(you'll have to excuse my old cell phone photo...grainy and blah...tried to fix it 100x's but it didn't want to save it so whatev)

I've been struggling with timing and patience..and patience..and trusting...

yeah, I guess that I've just been all around struggling ;)

yesterday during my quiet time I came across this thought in my study Bible: 
 sometimes life is like looking at a mountain range---from a distance the peaks look like they almost touch each other, but once you get a closer view you realize that they are really miles apart.

I kind of feel like that.

it seemed like- wow, it's finally happening..and it is...but once we reached the top of our mountain, the next peak wasn't just a quick little hop over.

nope...well crap...

looking out on the horizon, we have a lot of work to do.  yes, we are definitely in a season of green pastures and still waters...but there is harvesting and preparing and growing along the way.  

God promises to make our paths straight and to keep us from stumbling.  So, I walk...I follow the Shepard's leading....I hold tight to the hope in His promises...because He is good..He is true..He is the author of my life...the Redeemer of my strength.
