Driving down the road the other day, I hear Elliana  say:  “Look, its so beautiful.  It must be heaven.”


I hear Justus a few seconds later state:  “Ahhh.  Its an alligator and its going to eat you!”


The same situation.  Same image in front of them.  One perspective sees the beauty laying in front of us.  The other perspective sees the danger.

Life can be like that sometimes, can’t it?  Some days we wake up and our perspective is great, and we see a little bit of God’s hand in every circumstance.  Other days we wake up and our perspective is not so great, and we struggle to see God in anything.

Perspective truly is everything.  God’s word tells us:

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?(Psalm 56:4 ESV)

When we trust, I mean completely trust that God is in control, our perspective truly does change.

We are able to walk with confidence that He is leading and watching over us.  We are able to look at what might be an alligator chasing us and begin to see the hand of God reaching down to bless us.



Wow. It's Quiet Here...
