oh to see with that ‘aspect from above’

From “Shadow of the Almighty – The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot”, p. 118:

While encouraging Elisabeth in a letter, Jim wrote, “Remember that the shadow a thing casts often far exceeds the size of the thing itself (espsecially if the light be low on the horizon) and though some future fear may strut brave darkness as you approach, the thing itself will be but a speck when seen from beyond.  Oh that He would restore us often with that ‘aspect from beyond,’ to see a thing as He sees it, to remember that He dealeth with us as with sons.”
