Expanses


When driving, apart from the thousands and thousands of advertisements that whiz by, you see two major expanses: earth and sky.

Earth, while advancing in the car, goes by fast as you look straight ahead. Rhythmically it seems to blur as it flies by. The road itself becomes a vague representation of its original form along with the trees, signs, and buildings.

The sky, on the other hand, seems almost still and calm. It doesn't move the same way the earth does as you look out the window.

You will find the paces of both areas very different. It mirrors a heavenly perspective. While time on earth seems to perpetually continue with minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years..., heaven, upwards, is still and calm,...almost waiting in anticipation. "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 2 Peter 3:8 It hovers nearly seemingly untouched by the rapid movement below. I find much joy and comfort knowing that God is constant and over all, He is the sky to me a very chaotic world.

Very beautifully and well put! I like that analogy.
