PerSPECtive

Standard

I have unfortunately run into walls, furniture and other stationary objects. Yep, that’s right, I’ve run into objects that don’t move!

Don’t judge me. 🙂

I wouldn’t define myself as a klutz or a disaster waiting to happen. I just need my “specs” if I’m going to accomplish anything, especially if it’s in the dark.

Many of us at some point in our lives need a new perspective. A new outlook — we just need to look out of the box.

Some of us get stuck day after day looking at the same walls. The same situations. Blah. Blah. Blah.

I see things so much differently when I’m not wearing my contact lenses or glasses. Things appear dull, blurry, fuzzy or non-existent (hence walking into furniture).

Need a glimpse of hope? Put some specs on or get a new prescription. 🙂

It’s like the girl who put on someone elses glasses and thought she was petting a cat when in reality she was petting a sewer rat.

When I think of perspective, I can’t help but think about the story of the paralytic that is mentioned in Mark 2:1-5.

“And again He (Jesus) entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house.  2 Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. 3 Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. 4 And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven you.’”

This man and his friends changed their position and their perspective.

They had a SPECtacular view! 🙂

If you are feeling dull, hopeless, helpless, you name it — try changing your view.

I hope you were encouraged! Thanks for reading!

Joyfully His!
