It has been said that most people who visit the Grand Canyon National Park see it from the top-side looking down and those who visit Zion National Park see it from the bottom-side looking up. In either case, a person cannot experience the totality of either park unless they venture beyond the typical tourist spots.

Likewise, our perspective of life situations is almost always from the current vantage point -- as we are going through them. We can look back on the past but have no possible way to know what the future holds. Our perspective may be that conditions are absolutely bleak and hopeless yet God's plan may be for us to trust His hand as we endure for a short period of time until He teaches us a lesson, builds character in us, or just draws us closer to Him until His will is accomplished in and/or through us.

I don't know what you are going through today, but I hope you can say like the Psalmist, "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. In You, Lord my God, I put my trust." (Psalm 28:7 and 25:1)
