I’ve started noticing that every week at Bible Study I seem to quote a movie and relate it to our current topic. So while I continue having this odd, yet awesome habit I figured I’d share it here as well.
So this week a friend of mine made a correlation of what God sees versus what we see using a tapestry. He sees the big picture, but we only see a small part of it. This of course brought to mind the Clueless quote about Monet. “…full on Monet….it’s like a painting, see. From far away it’s okay but up close it’s a big ol’ mess.”
I think we get so tied up in thinking we know what’s best and what direction to take, that we often overlook the plan of the One that actually knows best. He sees the bigger picture and what the whole plan is, while we only pretend to know what it might look like. We see the smaller picture– what is happening right now and can only guess what the rest of the picture will look like. Why? Why don’t we just trust in the One that sees the entire thing and wants the absolute best for every one of us?
