Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?
In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.
So here’s today’s suggestion:
Keep things in perspective
When we’re going through something, we can be guilty of blowing it up out of all proportion. e.g. You completely overreact because your taxi is 5 minutes late arriving to take you to an important meeting.
To help get these small things in life into perspective, I find I simply need to remind myself of the big picture by looking around me at this wonderful universe that God has gifted to us – The moon and the stars; the mountains and the valleys; the flowers and trees; the rivers and the streams; the birds and the animals…
When I look around at all these gifts, it reminds me how small and inconsequential I am, and then I realise again, how privileged I am to be part of such a magnificent universe. My “problems” suddenly seem more like challenges, areas I’ll need to work extra hard at, and so seem achievable.
All putting today’s problems into perspective.
