One of the things I like about services such as Instagram is that they make it clear how filters can affect the way we see things. A rainy day at Starbucks can become a stunning visual.
It’s the same way with life. How we filter our experiences affects our perspective and the ways we react to those experiences. With the right perspective, a difficult experience becomes an opportunity or a challenge instead of a “bad experience.”
(Not to get all corpoorate-speak on you there. I know that some people use that language to be manipulative. That’s not my goal.)
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28 ESV)
So, here’s the question: Is there something in your life that you need to reframe?
Just think about it for a minute. You can respond to me if you’d like. But I’m more interested in you (and me) hearing from God and becoming more in tune with his heart and mind.
