Perspective is everything!. Here’s what my wife and I have been experiencing in the recent six months.
- Moved into a new home.
- Three positive COVID tests in the family.
- Two quarantines.
- Finally bought a second car.
- Missed Thanksgiving due to quarantine.
- Gave up a great job.
- Our first grandchild was born.
- Missing out on a big leadership retreat in Lake Tahoe.
And the list goes on. Challenges and blessings, all of it. That’s where perspective comes in. It would be easy for me to say that the past six months have been really difficult. While that may be true, I’m challenging myself to change my perspective and language. Another way to frame this is to state that it’s been really BIG. See the difference? It’s still true, but ‘big’ identifies both the negatives and the blessings.
Know what else? God…God is BIG! His promises, power, and love for us is absolutely enormous. We don’t even have the ability to comprehend all that he is.
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. Psalm 147:5
God has proven to be bigger than my worst trials, and active in BIG ways with every single blessing I’ve had. Is this true for you too?
