You have probably heard the phrase, “There’s always two sides to a story.” Before we dig in further, I need to make it clear that I am not condoning the philosophical dualism approach where good and evil are equal forces ruling our lives.However, I am condoning the idea based on Biblical and Christian worldviews regarding the spiritual realm. I personally accept the idea that there are two forces which battle every day: God and His loyal angels against the angels who decided to rebel against their Creator.
Now that my intentions are clarified, let’s continue our discussion. When I first saw this picture, I must confess my mind went directly to Job, the Wizard of Oz, and Covid-19. The title I chose for this post seems to be perfect and in need of repeating… LOOK BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE. I don’t know what you are going through right now, but I want you to know that behind the pain, suffering, or even the lies, there is always a hidden message. I don’t wish to force my opinions on those of you who so kindly read my posts, but from my personal research it seems as though covid-19 was definitely a planned occurence (see here). Moving on, I would love to encourage you through whatever hardship and struggle you are going through. Keep fighting the good fight; but DO NOT be fooled there is a purpose behind everything. Everything works out for the good.
