What’s Your Perspective?

More than anything, I’ve been focusing on my PERSPECTIVE. My goal has been to keep a God centered/positive perspective no matter what. While I may not have everything that I want, God has provided all that I need…
While I was volunteering at a local pregnancy center this week, I took on a “grateful” perspective.  A client came in in need of everything. Her nephew had just left his daughter with her b/c him and his girlfriend “didn’t want a baby anymore”. They left their child w/ 3 diapers and 4 sleepers.  Although this woman was going through a lot her perspective was to be admired.  She was thankful. Thankful for the baby being w/ her and not being hurt.  Thankful that the pregnancy center was able to help her w/ some of her immediate needs.
The perspective that we choose to exhibit is totally up to us. It’s kinda like the cartoon I’ve always seen as a kid w/ the person having an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other…you can choose to look at things from God’s eyes or the Satan’s. The choice is yours.
Frankly, I choose God. No matter what I’m going through, God is always there and there is always hope that things will get better. Yes, times may be hard and our circumstances may seem to be horrible but God is always there to be our comfort and to teach us how to be the Christ-follower that we proclaim to be.
You’ll never know how strong the tea is until you summerge it in hot water, right?
So don’t be afraid of tough times. Look at them as the tests for your testimony! Let the trials of life bring you to a place of authenticity in your faith and cause you to be thankful for all that God has given you already!
Your perspective determines your attitude, outcome, words, thoughts and actions…it’s just that important!
I choose a God-centered perspective…what about you?
