The Long Perspective

Each place seen here is in itself a rock filled wasteland, a desert. But seen from a distance at sunrise — beauty breaks forth. Some day we will have the long perspective on the deserts of our lives … and that will be glorious.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
