I draw inspiration from the beautiful mountains.
The first time I saw the mountains in Colorado, I was not just inspired, I was in awe.
I wasn’t prepared for the beauty!
They appeared in front of me as big, beautiful, priceless oil paintings. Yet, they were real!
I couldn’t imagine living in the area, as I could never take my eyes off the sheer beauty!
After a few days, I was less aware of them, and they became the background around me.
The gift of life is just as awe inspiring. It’s big, beautiful, and priceless!
Yet, as we live life daily, the beauty fades into the background. Our focus becomes smaller and we allow life circumstances to become rivals for the forefront of attention.
Circumstances happen, but they should never be larger than life.
We shouldn’t let the beauty of every day become our background.
How can we flip the script?
As I thought about this, I decided. As for me and my life, I am going to make it my goal to live a big, beautiful, awe inspiring life.
I am committed to keep my eye on the great gift of life, God has already outlined for me.
I may not be the artist, but he has given me my own will. I get to fill in the lines.
Honestly, I don’t think I can look at his creation without first thinking of Him. He is the artist.
I draw from that perception. I am aligning my view to his view. As I do, I see circumstances taking a back seat on my journey.
Sure they will be there, that’s a given. But, my present troubles do not determine my journey in life. They don’t have the right!
Troubles do not design me and you.
We don’t have to allow them to refine us. Only God has the right.
Circumstances do not outline our future. God has already done that.
We have been given life and life abundant. John 10:10
The present circumstances don’t determine where we can go, they merely determine where we start.
View life like a journey, if circumstances determine your start, recalculate.
Have a big, beautiful, awe inspiring life!
