Friday Insights – How to Change Your Perspectives about Life

By

This topic alone deserves an entire book to adequately address the complexities of change and the myriad of perspectives that life has to offer each one of us.

Nonetheless, I think if one really wants to change his or her perspectives about life, then either he or she must evaluate his or her beliefs.

Because what we believe and whom we believe in, especially when life’s challenges seem overwhelming, are going to reveal how we respond to change.

From a personal standpoint, I understand the relevance of having your mind renewed in order to see additional perspectives about life.  But when you’re experiencing tremendous pain or perhaps you’ve experienced too many problems for which there appears to be no solvable answers, then it’s easy for your mind to become “stuck” as it pertains to how you view your life.  That’s what happened to me several years ago.

I couldn’t see any other perspectives to make the necessary choices that might provide effective ways to change or living life any better than what I was already trying to do by merely keeping my head above water.

Being “stuck” caused me to remain focused on my own wounds and brokenness, instead of seeking God and surrendering to the possibilities of being transformed.

Yet, once I had reached the end of myself and then gave everything about my life to God, it was from this place where I learned how to accept and then see the meaning behind my painful suffering. I was able to accept the humble state I was in, and from this place, God’s grace enabled me to see the inspiring possibilities of transformational change.

Then the ultimate question from God challenged me about change: “Will you follow me?”

Gordon, very powerful words. I am reminded that it is way to easy to get stuck, only with a daily surrender does the mind get renewed. With eyes of faith, I see life in a new and different way. I hope you guys are well.
