Sometimes we don’t notice the things around us until we see them in a different context or from a new vantage point. How we see things and what we see are very dependent on where we are at the moment and where we are looking. Knowing that about ourselves is important.
When it comes to matters of life and faith, it is important to have a few solid Christians to talk with and get their perspective on tricky matters. We might not be able to see our options. We might not be able to understand how someone we care about could make such terrible choices. We might be unwilling to consider a different perspective on a matter without the help of someone we trust to show us another way of looking at things. We can benefit from one another’s life experiences and perspective, particularly if we are navigating through a difficult time.
It is even more important to consider God’s perspective through His Word and through a healthy, trained pastor.
Sometimes the very things that have been around us for many years have been overlooked because they have always just been a part of the picture. As you travel through life, look around. Look up. Look down. Take time to absorb where you are. Be open to seeing situations from a different point of view.
Ask God to give you fresh eyes for your circumstances.
And if you chose a verse to ponder, I would love to see it!
On the Road,

Thankful that God has given me fresh eyes. We are weary with job searching, soul searching, and parenting adult children. I’m focusing on these two verses:
“O tarry and await the Lord’s pleasure; be strong, and he shall comfort your heart, wait patiently for the Lord.” ~ Psalm 27:18
“Jesus said, ‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them. In truth, I tell you, till heaven and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, is to disappear from the Law until all its purpose is achieved.’ ” Matthew 5:17-18
