So I was lying down looking up at the sky. It was late in the evening and the clouds were grey, with the prospect of rain very high. But then I looked up and I saw a tree, in fact multiple trees stretching out above me and I got to thinking do I see the things around me for what they really are? I could have complained that this tree was in fact blocking my view, it was in my road. Then I got to thinking what if the tree was in fact not there to cause me an issue but to shelter me when it rains?
I wonder if some of those things going on in your life are not in fact designed to destroy you, but in stead to protect you, make you stronger and prepare you for your future. Maybe what is blocking you from the view of the black clouds is actually going to be the thing that keeps you dryer when it rains.
I wonder how different our world would be if we learned to look at obstacles in life, as chance to grow and learn and develop in character and strength, rather than as something to take us out and destroy us.
How do you view your life? Are you viewing it through a lens of disappointment, hurt, discouragement, rejection..... or are you viewing it through the lens of faith, hope, opportunity and a future that is yours to live and live well. Are you going to take the opportunities that come your way and seize each day and make it your best day yet. Why not. We can go from strength to strength, glory to glory, so why not make each day better than the last. Its not about what happens in the day, its about your attitude and who you are walking with.
