I appreciate that this year we have been put in a new navigation thru life, it is tough to some, no different to others, should be opportunity for many. Every day is an opportunity. Just change your perspective. It may shock us at times, by what is happening, but actually and probably that’s because many of us have ALREADY been living such a blessed life. That’s truth for anyone who counts their blessings.
I imagine those old time cartoons of the city mouse moving to the country and the country mouse or cat or person moving to the city. Gives them a new view. Everyone has their own perspective. Everyone looks for familiarity. Everyone is shocked at how the others in the world live. Imagine someone else from perhaps a third world coming to live your life, would they feel privileged? Ready to seize the opportunity? Amazed? I always say a bad day here is still probably better than a good day in impoverished places.
In those new drone videos you can look at the landscapes and life from a new perspective, the air, but isn’t it amazing that we tend to look for the familiar landmarks. Ride a hot air balloon and you look for people and places. In all, life too, we look for what we know.
How fitting for new life in the Spirit that we do that too. But now we ALSO are not to worry about unknowns. Look for the familiar, yes, and then, with a new life in the Lord, look thru His perspective when you think to stop looking thru your own. Look to be amazed. Look to be challenged. Look thru Spirit Perspective and Spirit Focus.
Imagine how you could and would change perspective. Would you feel privileged to now know you are living thru the Word? Would you feel driven? You bet. Would you feel compassion or comfortable? Not comfortable. Ready to seize the opportunity or rest? Not rest. Except resting assured.
Would you feel ready? The Spirit in you has always been ready, willing, able… just waiting for you to catch up, to gain a good perspective. A Spirit Perspective from above, the whole world looks whole only when the Spirit fills in the gaps. A Spirit Perspective from inside, where you are crucial to the wholeness of not the world but the Way. You are Spirit Flow the world needs to know. The Spirit desires to help the children of God achieve where the world needs to go.
Would you feel amazed? Be AMAZED.
Go with your Spirit Flow.
Jesus said: “But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well…..
Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today.” Matthew 6:33-34
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16
