Picture Taken 07/25/12 — Sculpture Outside IMAX Theater, Raleigh, NC
Just outside the IMAX theater in Raleigh stands one of my favorite sculptures. I don’t know the name of it, but if it were mine to name, I’d call it “Window in the Skies” after one of my favorite U2 songs. Like a magnet, it invites one to come close and look up–way up.
When I do, I am reminded of the smallness of me, and the vastness of God. When I look thru this little window in the sky, I think of this well known verse in the bible:
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12
If I look at the world from this perspective, that is I take my eyes off the ground and off the sometimes dark situations that sometimes surround me, and look up and beyond (a vision beyond visibility)I am reminded that just past the edge of darkness, is a window to eternity, an even truer dimension then we know here and now.
Our lives are but a few grains in the sands of time, and the one question that plagues us through much of life is this: Why?
The answer is often a mystery. But look way up through the window. Walk the plank called faith until it’s time to take a leap. God’s love and light is all around us, a subtle torchlight to guide us safely home.
Until then, we are but silhouettes in His bright light, but still His love can allow us to shine.
And in case you’re a U2 fan, how about a little “Window in the Skies” to ponder what love has done in your life, as you enjoy the pic!
