Today, I’m thankful for perspective. Sometimes I get down and out. I start noticing all the negatives. I begin to think it is all going to pot. But then someone, something, or some circumstance comes along to give me perspective. It opens my eyes to how great things really are. Yes, sometimes, often times, there are bad things happening. But usually, over all, when perspective breaks into my view, I discover everything is actually pretty good. I thank God for the people He puts in my life to give me perspective.
My goal today is to maintain a proper perspective. I want to see things as God does, not simply as I do. I want to see His great blessings, not just the things that annoy me. My goal is to count my blessings and name them one by one.
Gracious God, thank You for perspective. Thank You for leading me through circumstances and into relationships with people who give me perspective. Thank You for being patient with me every day, every week, every month, every year as I repeatedly have to get back to a proper perspective. Help me have Your perspective every day. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
