Wen I was in the woods and laying on the leaves on my back and looking up at the trees, well I was wondering. See, if God sees all this stuff from WAY up in the sky, that means He sees the tree branches BEFORE He sees the fat trunk. Does THAT mean the trees look upside down to HIM? And wut if HE sees it all right and really WE are the ones that sees the trees UPSIDE DOWN? If you are as smart as me, then YOU just figured out that life is just like those trees. Maybe we just look at it all upside down! I wonder wut life looks like if it is right side up--like how GOD sees it? (The Silent Cries, p. 265)
We see life from a very limited perspective, whereas God sees everything from an eternal perspective. He is the only One who knows how every facet of our life and experience will affect us. He sees how we and others will grow from the challenges that we face. He allows us to make choices on how we will act or react to those problems and whether we will or won't choose to triumph over our pain and use these experiences to try and make a better world than the one we lived in.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject. Please share.
