Take the Long View

It has been said that where God closes a door, he opens a window.  However, I prefer the bigger, better imagery of “Where God closes a window, He opens a door.”  That door opening is sometimes 3-4 times larger than the window, and goodness, with the door open, the light just floods in.  We only need to be present to see and accept it. (And choose to open the door.)

That thing you were looking for that didn’t happen? It’s just small potatoes compared to what is coming for you next.  In the minutia of days, we can lose sight of the grand orchestrations of Heaven.  When you struggle, my friend, take a deep breath and then, take the long view.

Use your eternal eyeglasses.  When I used to teach high schoolers, I would place my middle and ring fingers on the hinge of my jaw with palms up towards the ceiling.  Then, I would bring my palms forward against my cheeks as my upside-down hands folded upward to support the ‘glasses’ created by my circled thumb and index finger.  It never failed to get their attention and open the discussion for eternal eyeglasses.  You can’t help but notice when someone is wearing the lenses of perspective.

Eternal eyeglasses allow us to see past the present moment, past this decade, and way off into the distant future.  They focus us on the great things coming as we walk the mucky path of the present.  Seeing that distant view creates hope and new energy in our souls.  Try it- what will the lesson of today do for you 20 years from now?  Put the glasses on!

Trust by remembering the help you received in the past- the way you have been comforted and looked after.  You are so loved!

Let the energy of perspective and trust propel you into your grandly orchestrated future.

Just keep swimming and don’t give up-

You’ve got this.

All my love,
