Good Sunday morning friends. After a couple of dreary days here in the midwest, today promises to be bright and beautiful. And like the dreariness of these past two day, we ourselves can become dreary with self pity if we focus on this current obstacle surround the entire world. With each passing day it gets harder as our thoughts dwell on ‘will this ever end?’ and I promise you it will. Sometimes we need to change our perspective of how things seem to be and lift our heads to His light and let the light of His presence engulf us and bring us peace.
2 Corinthians 4 reminds us not to lose heart,
and to focus on what is not seen. And what is not seen is more beautiful than we can imagine. We have been taught that God always has us in His hand and while He does not cause difficult situations, He will use those situations to show us His infinite power and love. So I challenge you today to
relax in the brightness of His Presence
enjoy the fruits of His Love
Breathe in deeply and smile
and if you are able, take in a calming sip of laughter
Its all about perspective. So climb to the top of the ladder and see your life in God’s Presence.
And always remember, now more than ever, to be kind.
