On Sunday, May 27th, at 8:34 a.m., I was remembering all that we read about the discovery of Lake Louise by the first settlers, and the small hamlet named for this nearby lake. It was named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria… yes “that” Queen Victoria.
This view is pretty much due west from our room, and overnight most of the ice that covered over half the lake had melted. There was almost no breeze at all and the lake took on a perfect mirror reflection of the mountains and sky above.
While standing in awe of the view, I wondered about the pioneers who might have witnessed this view decades ago, and if they needed direction, it was easy enough to see. Right in the middle of the photo, where the lake meets the closest mountain on the left, the snowy mirror reflection made a perfect arrow pointing west.
Here’s a closer view.
As I reflected on these images this morning, I was reminded that God does these kinds of things on purpose. When the way to turn is obscured by difficult circumstances, when life seems pointless or dreary, God can reveal a path to wellness, wholeness, and healing… if we just know where to look, and follow the path revealed. That’s why Jesus came. It is … who He is.
John 14:6, Jesus said…
“I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Follow the signs, follow the arrows, and turn your eyes upon Jesus today.
