|Bodie Island Lighthouse|
|Cape Hatteras Light Station|
We visited three lighthouses -- Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, and Currituck -- each unique and beautiful on the outside. Despite their differences, each of these lighthouses possess certain characteristics in common: they are active lighthouses with great historical significance, provide a signal at night to aid with nautical navigation, and they have steps...lots of steps...winding through the center of the structure from the bottom all the way to the top.

Looking back on that visit to the lighthouse I am reminded that as Christians we are often challenged to live above our circumstances and try to see our problems from a different perspective -- God's perspective. Yet sometimes the steps we must take to rise above our problems is as difficult as the climb to the top of that lighthouse! However, as we persevere, walking by faith and knowing that God is with us every step of the way, we can rise above our circumstances and behold His glory as never before.
