I had the fulfillment of a nice gift yesterday. I was given a Groupon to do a Discovery Flight. I was given 10 to 15 minutes of "training" at a simulator on the ground and then we went up in a four seat Cessna airplane and I actually got to run the controls and fly. It was a blast. I did notice that the instructor asked that I ease up my grip on the controls as we approached for the landing. Wonder what that meant?? :-)
That is why we encourage people to consider God's perspective about their lives. To us, on the ground, things can look rough. But from above, God sees things, people, and places He has planned for us to bring us life. His perspective is always better.
How's your perspective today? I encourage you to look to the One who stands above it all and ask Him to show you His pictures. Life will look far different for you too.
