Keep Things in Perspective – The Midnight Edition

Happy Full Moon!

Today’s blog is delayed because I needed to learn some lessons in action regarding perspective shifting.

I lost my phone last night after having such a wonderful evening, and almost let the loss eclipse the joy. Isn’t that how it usually is? Sometimes, one negative moment can overshadow the many positives as well.

Losing my phone almost made me forget the new acquaintances I made, the wonderful views, how vibrantly orange the moon was last night, or the fact that I haven’t had to pay for my transportation, food and drinks these past two days.

Losing my phone felt like a pretty significant loss, but ultimately, losing it reminded me of the kindness of strangers. My cab driver from yesterday answered my phone, and was able to give me his number right before it died. He also charged my phone completely, and dropped it off at my house.

Perhaps this message is simple – even in the midst of difficult moments, find the blessings, and repeat the blessings often. The more you reflect on what’s going right, the less power you’ll give to the one moment where things went wrong.

A Prayer

Father God,

Thank you for blessing me each and every day. Thank you for surrounding me with great people who had my best interest at heart yesterday. Lord, in the moments when I am tempted to forget your mercy and goodness, I ask that you retrain my focus to see your light.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Mood Music

“I am grateful for the things that you have done
Yes, I’m grateful for the victories we’ve won
I could go on and on and on about your works
Because I’m grateful, grateful, so grateful just to praise you Lord

Until Tomorrow.
