Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Perspective

Proverbs 4:23 – Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

From childhood to adulthood, everything experienced has helped in shaping our perspectives. How each of us see the world is different. Somedays require a thankful attitude to remain positive and walk by faith, not by sight. (smile) Lately, my sleep pattern has been off; so here I am facing another Monday and thank God, my perspective on this Monday is 50% better than last Monday! (shock face) Praise The Lord!

Once upon a time, there was more freedom to communicate and express ourselves. Today, we must be careful with expression because while we were distracted with things and stuff, rules and laws were made that in some places prohibit the expression of this and that. (shock face)

It was suggested that I share more about me in my blogging. (gritted teeth smile)

Personally, here is a fun fact to know: I don’t like to argue and I steer clear of politics and religion. Arguing is a waste of time and energy. So I am surprised that I am stepping out of my comfort zone to write more about myself, and other things. A writer writes. (smile)

Until we deal with our own stuff in our heart, it makes changing our perspective more challenging. The things I write about here are all part of my own painful experiences learned the hard way because I had no spiritual fruit and I could not love and surrender to God. I was angry and prideful. I was broken on the inside and a pretty train wreck on the outside. (shock face)

My perspective about everything was skewed based on my own issues. Years ago, after many hardships and gut wrenching tears, God started closing doors to get my attention. It took months for me to grasp how in control He was and how I could not hear Him. Long story short, I quit a job because the Boss was a biscuit and worked my last nerve (gritted smile) I worked all night on my resume and knowledge, skills and abilities. Put the envelope in the mail knowing I would get that job! One week later, that envelope came back undeliverable because I was short 2 cents on the postage! (Ugh)

I broke down in my front year crying so hard that I heard The Lord say “can you hear me now”! I became His that day because I had no place to go but to turn to God. He knows what it takes to break us.

He healed places within me so broken that his unconditional love drew me to surrender and accept His Son Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He gave me a new heart filled with love and new life. My faith grew, my capacity to see beauty around me grew. Spiritual fruit was developing and replacing everything not spiritual within me season by season. I got in His Word to learn about Him and understand spiritual life and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

I started to talk to Him daily about everything. Frustrations, disappoints, why does the Christian walk have to be so hard? It was a long, long, long process until one day I realized my perspective of everything I ever knew changed. He healed the brokenness and made me whole! (ain’t life grand, smile)

That’s why I say the past is the past and only look back as a reference. It is my plan to continue to share my life through encouragement and faith to help someone know that stuff can happen to anyone and that God is the only one who can heal and make us whole. (smile)

Be blessed and have a great Monday! Comments and thoughts are welcome. (smile)
