As I lay awake in bed, listening to the early morning chirps of the birds, with a book right in front of me.
The phrase: SOMETIMES A SHIFT IN PERSPECTIVE IS ALL YOU NEED! Dropped in my heart.
I remember recently, I was in a conversation with a friend who was feeling down and out and I listened and I had one of those moments where Iâ€™m asking the Lord what he would have me say or do with the friend to bring comfort.
Then I heard a shift in perspective and immediately I had the aha moment. When my friend was done speaking, I said, your feelings are very valid and it is very okay to feel all of us these things and it's okay to be angry and tired, but can we try something different?
My friend responded yes, I said change your sitting position and take really deep breaths, after that let's listen quietly to what the Lord is saying to you.
And when we were done, we realized all my friend needed was JUST A SHIFT IN PERSPECTIVE to see what God is seeing about the current situation and boom she felt so much better and calmer and I can say itâ€™s been upward energy for my friend since then.
What exactly does this mean for you? Well, a shift in perspective sometimes is all you need, the thing about situations and challenges is they mostly come with clouded views, it takes sometimes physically leaving a place to gain perspective or even sharing with someone you are led to, to see the perspective from a much more unbiased view, especially seeing things from Godâ€™s perspective.
Why do we seek counsel and help, itâ€™s for a change in perspective, be it a mental, spiritual, or emotional view.
So are you currently experiencing one of lifeâ€™s ruts? Then a change in perspective just might be the answer to that problem or challenge.
The question then for you is, are you ready to let go of what you think is, to fully embrace what is?
Life will always be life, but you can constantly decide to shift your perspective to change the outcomes of your life.
So will you SHIFT mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially to be able to SHIFT and experience new life outcomes?
If yes, take a few deep breaths now and ask that the Lord show you what exactly you are not seeing about that situation or challenge and watch how the answer comes through for you and new insight will flood in.
If no, change your perspective to accommodate your NO to becoming a YES, because the answer to all and everything lies in your YES to accepting to shift your mindset so that you can fully enjoy or even scale through lifeâ€™s hurdles.
YOU HAVE A CHOICE. CHOOSE LIFE.
