Day 22: Soaring

Funny how you can hear a scripture over and over again but then all of a sudden you just “get it.”

Even though the truths in the Bible are eternal, they were written in a time and a place that seems very far removed from the life we live today.  We may have a hard time truly understanding references to a culture and time we are not familiar with. The profoundness of what we are reading is sometimes obscured. I am thankful to the many teachers, commentaries, and translations that have helped me along the way.

We can miss it unless we dig, unless we slow down to hear the Holy Spirit, unless we sit down long enough to look up.

Ever stop to look up? I did. I will be sharing what I found over at Circles of Faith today.  Join me there for Day 22?
