Smells Like Horseradish

Dr. Howard Moskowitz said,  "To a worm in horseradish, the whole world is horseradish."

Hearing the good doctor's quote reminded me that it is easy for us to become so focused on our circumstances that we fail to see what else is happening in the world around us. We miss out on what God might be trying to tell us because we are weighed down with our present status. The sound, sight, smell & touch of day-to-day can threaten to overwhelm the hope that we are intended to see through God's promises. When you are convinced you are trapped in the horseradish and you feel that you might drown in it, your perspective can make it almost impossible to sense anything else.

The emancipating truth is that God is still God even if life as we know it isn't flowing how we imagined. He is still the sovereign King who waits for His people to cry out for His saving grace once we recognize our desperate need. Even the stench of our current predicaments will disappear with the sweet fragrance of majestic rescue.
