Perspectives

Stay by your worries

and they will become mountains,

towering dark across your path—

too big and terrible to cross. 

 

But our vision becomes so easily distorted, 

and the fears we see so clearly 

are only scary caricatures of reality

—the closest things always look the biggest.

 

Stay by your God, 

and He will become your universe, 

shining like the sun on your path—

bigger and more beautiful than anything we can understand. 

 

Then all the other cares

will at last appear properly—

like forgotten dust

in the throne room of the King.
