If you have traveled to Indiana recently or been to this part of the Midwest, you realize that mountains are something Indiana lacks for. Growing up in Indiana my entire life, I've come to appreciate the lush green carpet that spreads out amongst our fields in the summer (we call it "corn") or the leaves that begin to rustle and change this time of year. But mountains, we simply do not have. Until today when I was driving west on a long Indiana highway, I came up over a hill (aka known as a pothole in other parts of the world) and noticed something spectacular! At a first-quick glance, the clouds before me bellowed a hundred feet up in the air and appeared as mountains beyond the horizon (give or take a few hundred feet. I'm bad at estimation). I was amazed, and it was impressive even if the Mountains of Indiana lasted only a moment and were merely a figment of my imagination. I thought of 2 Corinthians 4:18, "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." God brought the verse to mind today. I need to fix my eyes upon what is unseen by the world to see what God truly desires for me to see. What are you focused on today?
