not by sight

Princess Morag lives near quite spectacular mountains - this has been good compensation for the lack of precipitation and greeness.  Last weekend the clouds descended, and the sky was grey (she was happy about this) and she stood on the balcony and stared and stared.  Normally she would enjoy the view of the peaks in front of her, but that day she could see nothing but cloud.  And she used her minds eye to remember what it normally looked like; remembering the majesty of the mountains.  It was difficult, even though it was her daily view, it took effort to believe that they were still there.  She knew of course that they were - as mountains don't often run away - and she realised that she was pondering the business of FAITH.

God is even bigger than the mountains, and he never leaves us or forsakes us, yet we can't see him.  Our lives are full of big bad clouds that want to make us forget the majesty, forget the glory, forget reality.

"We live by faith, not by sight" 2Corinthians 5:7
