Praise God Who Sees

the big picture, the cosmic view –
like we do when we looked
at that ant hill-in-the-making
this morning, while waiting
for the school bus.

How like us, those ants are!
Watching them, we wonder why
they picked that particular spot
for a home when other areas
would be better by far.

But that’s how ants are:
They only can see what they see
in front of them on a lowly level –
like we do when we’re blocked
by our own low view that few
ever go beyond.

Praise our Most High God Who Sees
precisely where we need to be.
