The beauty of perspective
When we first moved to Idaho, our temporary living arrangements were an apartment on the third floor of a huge complex. If I opened our blinds, it seemed as though a thousand eyes could peer into the window. To the left of the kitchen table, where I sat and typed on my laptop, was a patio overlooking the parking lot. However, if I looked further I could see a beautiful mountain range.
No matter where I drove around town, I could see mountains providing a visual of Psalm 121. “I lift up my eyes to the hills where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip. he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” ~ Psalm 121:1-4 (NIV)
Regardless of our current situations, life here on earth is temporary, and Christ followers are guaranteed a happy ending. Our Heavenly Father provides the constant and consistent love and help we need.
When you look through the window of life, what do you see? Do you focus on the parking lot or do you notice the beauty of the mountains?
With the proper perspective filtered through God’s lens, life truly is beautiful.
Thank You Father for this beautiful life. Help my perspective always to be through Your eyes.
