Tunnel vision is described as having a very narrow view, inability to see beyond a limited viewpoint. It is the key reason our United States has, sadly, become ” dis-united.
If we let our focus narrow… we start to miss important things around us. Those ” missed things” are like lost puzzle pieces… leaving holes in our understanding of what truly is happening. Our visionary perspective becomes flawed and the puzzle will never get finished in its wholeness.
Certainly we are given example after example in Proverbs ( woman planting a vineyard, a wise herdsman, a wise leader who brings intelligent lasting order or the ant whose diligence assures him of food at harvest….that long-term man-made planning is necessary and profitable. BUT… Proverbs: 19:21-” … The human mind may devise many plans, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.”
We still need God’s long-term, everlasting vision to accompany the plans of us mere mortals… in other words we need God to continue prodding us in the right direction with our plans.
So until tomorrow… With today being Father’s Day… we need to keep listening and watching for positive signs from our Heavenly Father that we are seeing the whole picture before following one certain path depending only on our mortal limitations. In the end God’s plans for us are our ultimate goal!
I only had an earthly father for five years… but my Heavenly Father has filled in with ” Amazing Grace” and my growing mustard faith! Let’s also hear it for the single parents who had to take on dual roles raising us! Mother and father!
