Through the Eyes of A Lion by Levi Lusko.
One of the parts that brought me to tears early in the book was when he said to put the book down and go look at the sky. I was reading outside, on the deck, at about 11 am. So...I did. I felt a little odd doing it but...I did it. And of course...I saw a clear blue sky.
I sat back down to read the book. He asked if I saw hundreds of stars. Hmmmm..no. Not quite. But then he went on to say that just because I didn't see hundreds of stars...doesn't mean they weren't there.
That's all it took for me. Everything hit me right there. I got the point. I knew what he was saying and it hit me right where I needed it.
Later that night I came outside. I stood on the same spot on the deck and looked up to the same sky. It was amazing. Stars as far as I could see. And I suddenly flashed back to a few hours earlier when I was standing there looking at a clear blue sky.
Same sky. Same stars. One time I saw them, another time I didn't. They were always there.
I ran to get my Bible and read one of my favorite stories.
