I Saw God today in a silhouette.
Today’s photo challenge taught me about perspective.
The word for the day was silhouette.
I looked past the objects around me to the shadows they cast.
A shift in perspective.
Those shadows were there all along, yet that is not what I saw at first glance. When I look at something, I tend to concentrate on the object itself. As I focused on a different perspective, I realized how easy it is for me to miss a unique aspect of an object, a person, a subject, or God when I concentrate only on what I immediately see.
As I altered my focus, not only did I gain new perspective, but what I was looking at was layered with new beauty. Today it left me wanting more, a hunt to find more shadows, shifting light, and shifting beauty.
And that is where I am left with God, wanting more, seeing Him, and knowing Him. As I look to Him, I want eyes to see the silhouette, the piece that I have been missing.
If you were to search for God’s silhouette today, what would you find?
