Perspective

How easy it is to believe that
what I see, and
what I feel, and
what I want, and
what I think
are my most important parameters for living.
In reality,
Who God is and
what He thinks
are the foundational principles of life.
When I forget this,
I set myself up to
worship the temporal
rather than the Eternal.
My perspective must be grounded
in the Word of God,
which speaks the heart of God
to my heart,
or I will flounder and fail
in this business called life.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

II CORINTHIANS 4:17-18

    So wonderful to read this, and meditate upon it, as I begin this new day in Him.

    It would also be wonderful if Gracespeak devotionals were published one day in a book.😁😊❤

      That, my sister, is a matter of prayer.
