I think perspective is one of the greatest assets that any of us can possess. The lens in which we view our world, relationships, and circumstances play a huge role in how we respond and react to life. Most of the time, our lens is clouded by pride, selfishness, and envy; building the "level of satisfaction" with ourselves on how we view the successes or failures of others. We often measure what we can and can't do or have and don't have with those around us. And the feelings we have, turn out to be momentary and circumstantial.
One thing I’ve learned that I can count on, is that when God says something is going to happen you can bet that it’s going to happen at some point. He doesn’t hold back or break His word.
