Thoughts from a Railroad Crossing


Slowly the train rumbled by, then stopped, then reversed, only to repeat the process over and over.

Seeing only a few cars at a time, and lacking a bird’s-eye view, I could only trust that someone knew what he was doing.

Help for our limited perspective

Likewise, we can see only a small segment of reality. Scripture provides the perspective we lack: Something BIG is indeed going on! Life is going somewhere. And God is in control.

God has a plan and it is good. He invites us to become part of that plan.

The Source for all we lack

On one freight car passing by that day, someone had written, “Trust Jesus.”

He knows the Big Picture—He is the Big Picture! He can be trusted.
