What Is Perspective?
Many things help to prompt perspective. Quietness. A walk in the forest. Time spent along the roaring surf. A view from a mountain. Poetry. Travel. A stroll along an old graveyard. An evening beside a campire. Sleeping under the stars. A visit to historical places. Protracted times of prayer. Deep, profound strains of music. Meaningful worship. Meditation upon His word.
On such occassions time stands still. The chips of insignifigance fall away as the broad images of truth emerge in the monuments of our minds. We begin to see more clearly as the fog lifts...and we are running no longer. Or confused. Or angry. Or overwhelmed. Or afraid.
Could such places be considered "shelters of the Most High"? When we are there, could we be "abiding int the shadow of the Almighty" which David mentions in Psalm 91?
