Week 37 – Seeing Beyond
This week’s FotoFriday52 is a photo that I took last fall on a trip to Missouri. It was a beautiful drive in the Ozark Mountains and the leaves were changing colors. The temperature was cool and the day was misty which brought about a fog that would appear, then disappear, as we drove through the narrow and winding roads.
On this particular turn, the fog was lifting as we drove through, which I chose for this week’s post, simply because it describes how I’m feeling about our current situation. We recently put our dream home on the market, which is something I never imagined doing. There are certain things that you just KNOW you are supposed to do, and this is one of them. To me, this photo represents the lifting of the uncertainty that I once had, and the vision of a road beyond.
It also represents a peace that I feel. I’ve had a revelation of Philippians 4:7 this week: and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. I am mentally (mind) and emotionally (heart) detached (guarded) and therefore have a numbness to the fact that we are selling our home. I am certain the numbness is a result of the Peace that surpasses my understanding. And with that peace, the fog is lifting and the road ahead is one of certainty, security and freedom. I am also …anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, letting my requests be made known to God. (Phil 4:6) as I patiently await the next turn!
