Rule of Life Day 3 – Pure Peace
Today was another lesson in perspective for me. Another one. Over and over again, God teaches me about perspective. I seem to always fall back into the trap of looking at things from my point of view. Today my example was unique, but the same lesson none the less.
I was thinking about a current opportunity in my life. I have prayed about it. I have cried about it. I have jumped with joy about it, but I have also burnt with rage. Is this really the opportunity that God has for me? It turns out that the day before I was offered this opportunity, the owner of the company prayed for a solution. The next day, God lead me unknowingly to knock on her door. Perfect right? Yes. Again, it is about perspective. I thought to myself, this is the opportunity I have been praying for. I took on the challenge and it has been an amazing experience. Was I an answer to her prayers? Was she an answer to mine? Maybe both.
Life has cycles and perspectives. It has ups and down. It has simplicity and the forever complicated. When we imprison ourselves with a perspective, any perspective but God’s perspective, we handcuff ourselves to a sinking ship. Now, later, in a month or in a year, that ship will sink.
Today I had the opportunity to choose I am so grateful to have chosen You. Thank you for the lesson and the strength to make the right choice. Amen.
