There’s an old saying that goes, “Perception is reality.” I’m uncertain that is unequivocally true, but I know your perspective will define your reality. If we look at life through the lens of the media and the culture, we will see the world the way they paint it for us. But if we look at the world through God’s eyes, we will see it as He created it to be. We will see a beauty that is no longer visible to the naked eye.
Besides the beauty, we will also see the peace of God. I guarantee you won’t find either of those things on social media or the 24×7 news cycle. We need to lift our focus above the lies, the noise, and the fear. Instead, we need to focus on Jesus and build out our perspective from there.
