Its incredible how life tends to intertwine and overlap itself!
At church tonight, we were going over perspective, and how just a simple shift can make all the difference in our lives and in our faith. Well, on the way home I decided to take a bit of a scenic route, being I had the cam with me. I had always seen these rocks stacked in the yard of a house down this particular way home, and Ive been telling myself I need to get out here to shoot them for the blog. I had driven by them many times in the past, and never noticed the wagon wheels that surrounded this rock garden until today.
Originally as I approached the scene I captured a few images like the one below, showcasing the beauty of these rocks lifting each other up (Which coincidentally was the topic of last weeks wednesday sermon). This scene is beautiful in all its simplicity, with the wonderful plant aiding in the organic growing nature of the image and idea. However, although beautiful, with a shift of perspective I was able to include the newly noticed wagon wheel into the mix; bringing the overall dynamics up a rock or two… get it cause the rocks are stacked.. up.. so… I digress.
Isn’t this so true throughout areas of our life too? A simple shift in our perspective on an idea, situation or experience can make a world of difference. Changing the way we look at things can make the mundane the exciting, the mediocre the extraordinary, the dreaded the… not.. so.. dreaded? Either way, you get the point. Often times theres nothing standing in the way of us enjoying a dynamic life, and the only thing holding us back is the way we perceive our circumstances, situations and thoughts. Its as they say.. choose to be a victor, not a victim. Where should you shift your perspective?
Totally got deep on ya… your welcome
