As soon as I saw this photo this morning, a blog post began to stir within me. Right away I knew it represented the human soul.
the mountain range the flower field
loud like a silent scream quiet and peaceful looms in the background out front for all to see
There can be two sides to all of us: what we allow others to see vs. what is the "behind-closed-doors" us, which can ever be looming in the background.
If I center my eyes on the mountain range, it seems to overwhelm the landscape towering and powering over all else. But, when I center my eyes on the flower field, the mountain range is so in the background that I hardly notice it.
I do believe in MY soul, the "mountain range" is much more blurred at this stage of life and the "flower field" has emerged the dominating view of my landscape. However, every now and again I sense the "mountain range" trying to pursue its original potency and forefront position. But, daisies win out over rock.
Mountaineers gain mastery over mountains by ascending the walls of them.
Through diligent pruning to have succulent fruit bearing, the wildflowers of my soul are free and flowing in the breezes of life. Hopefully, bringing joy and welcoming beholders into the landscape of my life. I don't have to scale the mountains of my soul to try and conquer them. By focusing on the beauty and the quiet gentleness of God's Word, mastery over those mountains is attained. It just happens.
Oh, Hallelujah! Thank You, LORD, for showing me this today. Thank you for Don Case's photography that You spoke to me through. A quiet and gentle spirit (1 Peter 3:3-4) is the landscape of my soul now for which, LORD, I am eternally grateful to You for! With all that I am, I thank You.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
