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.
