Room For A View

Photo by Deibel Photography

This week the prompt for Five Minute Friday with LisaJo is VIEW:


We stood at the precipice of the canyon – pillars and wiggles of red rock as far as the eye could see.

It was stunning. Breathtaking.

From the bottom looking up it was a hot mess…dirt and dust; rock and debris.

Rough tough, blood sweat and tears work just to move a few feet forward only to end up in a sweaty, matted mess.

But from the top…

Oh, what beauty. What a masterpiece painted on a canvas only the very Best could accomplish.

We stood for longer than we intended, just soaking in the glory what He has made.

Later as we lingered even longer in front of the photographs, I hear The Whisper…

“This canyon is like you.”

I look at my hands, my words, my heart and all I see is mess. Rough, tough, ragged edges.

Blood, sweat and tears just to move a few feet forward only to end up in a sweaty, matted mess.

But You…

You craft, sculpt, create.

What you do, what you make……

Is Beautiful

Because of your Hand in my life.

From my view there is dirt, mess, struggle, ugly.

Your view, from the very top – big picture sweeping landscape sort of view – its beautiful. Ever changing, ever growing, but beautiful none the less.

Oh that you would give me grace and eyes to see myself from Your view.
