Looking Up For Encouragement

 After a day of receiving horrible news, I just had a moment and looked up. I took this video of my view and reminded myself a few things.

  • Trials are temporary. A friend just reminded me that storms actually end at some point.
  • Always look at the big picture. It is way too easy to have my head caught up in the crisis or trouble and have a foggy perspective.
  • It’s not about me. It just isn’t.
  • I am not alone. We were never meant to do life alone. I am thankful for my wife, family, and friends who care about me.

When I look up and view the expanse of the sky and feel the wind on my face, my sigh is one of relief instead of despair. I remember that there is God who sees me and knows me by name.

I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7.
