Perspective: A Conversation Remembered





I remember the conversation. He said that things would look different as I looked back on them in the future. He assured me that as I stood looking back in time I would see things that were occurring at this particular time,  in a different light. Perspective. How it can change over time. How years and wisdom reveal it. Peel back perspective and what do you have? Truth. It seemed hidden at the time he spoke to me. But I trusted his words. Trusted him. This one that walked me to the Savior and seemed to stand within the gates of Heaven. Not perfect, but peaceful. Solid in truth, this friend. I trusted him and I do not regret it. I trusted his words because I knew that the one he leaned on was the same one I wanted to learn to lean on. Was learning. This One certainly has changed my perspective. Continues to peel back my perceptions and wipe away lies with His fingertips. Scales fall, perspective is changed. Daily, by His grace.

    “Continues to peel back my perceptions and wipe away lies with His fingertips. Scales fall, perspective is changed. Daily, by His grace.” I love this! When He comes and peels away the wrong views I have, I see from His perspective!

    EXACTLY! How much I need to hear this. In conversations with…well, just about everyone. I tend to be so certain. Yep, that's it, just so certain of what I believe, what God is saying, etc. Thank you.

    That certainly does put life into its proper perspective…Christ changes everything…life becomes full of meaning once we meet the life-giver. Thank you for sharing this.

    Beautiful and so true. So often after a while, then looking back, we can see just why things happened the way they did. It's all HIS plans! 🙂
