Always Clear at the Stratosphere

Why do I worry over such a small thing? Havent you felt like this before?  Some things are not needed to be concerned or worried, but you cannot help yourself from feeling down and being depressed.  You may have experienced similar feeling before.


On one day in pouring down rain, I had to travel by theairplane.  The plane took off and flew for a while under very dark and thick cloud.  The whole plane was shaking.  The plane flew upward through the thick cloud, and finally got out of it.  Surprisingly, there was a totally different world above the cloud.  There was perfect blue sky and shining sun.  Under the cloud, rain was pouring.  Above the cloud, there was the world of blue sky.  I was so amazed, because of such a different world.  As I read a book, at much higher place calledthe stratosphere, it is always clear.


There are similar things happen in our life.  We can only see what in front of us.  We cannot ignore this fact, yet there is one thing we need to remember.  What we see is only a half of the world.  The Bible says this.


So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  (2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV)


There is God who rules and blesses everything.  The Bible says, such God prepares a totally different world with full of blessings, beyond what you see.  So, let us not be ruled by the world of pouring down rain.
