Where you choose to look, has such an impact on your life. Yesterday, I did not write. I was not up as early as I needed to be, and by the time I got home I was tired. I think I got a little down, and so I got up this morning with purpose to do this morning differently. But… My first thoughts seemed to be all centered around me, (crazy huh?) so I knew I needed to widen my focus.
Cameras do that. My hubby takes pictures and he rents different lenses all the time. I didn’t really get it till he started taking pictures on the same spot with different lenses. Some lenses produce pictures that make the subject pop, and all the background is really fuzzy. It is very trendy today, and it is really a cool looking shot. You can guess what the background is showing, because you see the color and shapes in it, but the real star of the picture is the subject. It is great for pictures, but a horrible way to live life.
I was thinking of me this morning, and it seemed a lot like the picture. My focus was on me, way too much! What I have to do, the stresses of life, everyone’s opinion of me, pain, fatigue. Ugh! Everything else was there, but it was obscured in the background.
So this morning, it is time to put on a different lens. I really think I need one with a much wider angle. One that will let me see what’s in the background. The people, activity and the good that He is doing all around me.
