"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead..." Romans 1:20

Illusions

We're having a lovely snowfall at the moment.  This is the scene outside the window by my desk right now:


Can you see the deer?  


How about now?


It's amazing what we can see if we zoom in on things.  It's like when you're pregnant it suddenly seems there are  pregnant women everywhere.  And when you're thinking about buying a new car suddenly you notice every new car there is out on the road.  


It's like one of those optical illusion puzzles where there are two pictures but you can only see one at a time depending where you put your focus.  Here's a website that shows some:  Ambiguous Optical Illusions

This is another one.  If you focus on the black background it doesn't look like anything other than shapes, but if you focus on the white it spells a word: 


I think this is a good illustration of faith.  What or Whom we focus on makes all the difference.  If we focus only on the problem, that is what we'll see.  If we focus on the solution--God--He is whom we'll see, with all His attending wisdom and power to solve the problem. 


Father, help me to keep my focus on You so that I might see what is true and believe without doubting.
