So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
Sometimes we just need a fresh perspective during these challenging times and sometimes that new perspective can come from, of all places, social media. Tuesday morning, I saw a post from Vicky Shuttleworth that just changed my day for the better and I want to share it with you.
What would be your headline today? Let us never forget that we are surrounded by God’s blessings every day, we just need to open our eyes and hearts to see them. I know that isn’t easy right now, but it is totally necessary. We need to remember that this too will pass, and we will be back together again, with masks and social distancing at first, to keep each other safe. And while this time of social distancing and quarantine has taken things way it has also given us some good things. Perspective is everything, it can change how we view things and what we see. Perspective can help us see the bigger picture and help us to see what is eternal.
Gracious and Loving God, you reassure our hearts of your love with the blessing of a beautiful sunset and a cool summer breeze. Create in us eyes that see the blessings that you surround us with every day and hearts that understand that we need to bless others every day as well. Help us to be able to realize that you are eternal, and this pandemic is temporary. Help us to still be enchanted with this life and to show your grace and mercy to those we encounter today. Help us to rise above this situation and to follow in the ways that your son taught us live.
Stay well and stay safe.
Grace & Peace, Suzanne
