I know I can really only see life from my own perspective.  It is almost impossible to take another’s perspective and see life from that angle.  I know what I know and feel what I feel, and cannot “suspend belief” in order to see life through another’s eyes.

           

So, what an impossible prayer!  To ask to see my life from God’s viewpoint.  I can’t even begin to comprehend what he alone knows about my life from beginning to end.  (I could only see what has already taken place, while he sees all the way to the end.)  How foolish to even assume that I could understand it.

           

Rather than attempting to “get inside God’s head,” seeing my life from his perspective, and hoping to understand my life situation as a result, there is a better alternative.

           

Look to him as a baby looks to its mother, in simple trust.
