Evey wonder how and why we loose our perspective on things? How and why do our perspectives change?
Psalm 16:8- "I have set the LORD always before me, because he is at my right hand I will not be moved."
When we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, everything else works out.
Its when we take our eyes off, that we sink.
"But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” ~Matthew 14:27-30~
This became especially true recently. I knew what I had to do but I was afraid to do it. What am I talking about? I knew it was time to move out of my house and get my own apartment. Everything about this process was scary to me. Despite the fear I began looking for apartment. I looked and looked and looked but nothing was it. Not wanting to give up (because I knew I had to do this even if it killed me, for my mental and emotional health, and my peace.) I kept looking and tried not to get discouraged. I finally said to the Lord one day in frustration," Lord, I cant keep doing this, if you want me to have my own place then you will have to give it to me." The Lord very graciously said me to."My Child, don't give up I have and will provide for you." Knowing that the Lord was right I said." Ok Lord, I trust you." It wasn't until a few days later that I found a decent place for a good price. I put in my application and waited. A week later I get a call and I'm in! So I get all my stuff moved in and can finally relax.
My new place is great! I love the option of having peace and quiet when I want. I feel the peace when I walk in the door and Jesus and I can talk and spend time whenever I want. I have learned a lot through this and it really was worth the time and effort that it took.
Remember, keep your eyes on Jesus and the rest works out.
All for Him,
