Look to the Hills!

Posted by Al Hathaway Thursday, September 10, 2009

On a hill overlooking Rio De Janerio is one of the seven wonders of the world: the statue of Christ the Redeemer. This statue is the dominate image throughout the area. It is an awe inspiring image. It constantly reminds you of the watchful eye of God and the tender mercy of Jesus Christ.


I took this picture on a cloudy misty day and was unable to see the statue even when I was very close. For a moment the mist rolled away and I was able to take this picture.

The misty day and the eventual mist rolling away reminded me that in life there will be moments when you will not see God clearly. Even though he is present willing and able; there will be some obstructions in your way. Obstructions, hurdles or obstacles should not deter one from seeking or inhibit one's faith from believing that God is very near. And as the songwriter says, "he is there just when you need him most."

I pray that everyone will resolve in their spirits "to look to the hills from whence cometh your help, your help cometh from the Lord."
