THE BIG PICTURE
Through which we see, we respond. That which we see commands how we react. But we can look another way. You know– and see the Big Picture.
Can you see the big picture?
You were hurt. You were ignored by someone you love. You were criticized. But everybody else has been. Do not dwell on the pain.
You failed a test. You did not deliver. You did not meet expectations. But all fall short of something, someone, some time. Move on.
Someone is better. Another has more. One thinks faster and makes more sense. You are not as good-looking, or as happy as the other. But no one is better than another in everything, all the time. Do not compare. Our own insecurities reflect how others themselves feel.
You are better looking, smarter, richer, happier. Your life is of service, fruitfulness and success. But the only thing constant is change. Everything is temporary and can be gone in the wink of an eye. Do not let pride set in.
You’re on fire and you win souls. One is passive yet still win souls. One’s faith and eloquence cannot be denied. Another’s good works are worthy of recognition. One says he has faith. Another says he does good. One man performs miracles. A woman prays earnestly.. in the secrecy of her home. God orchestrates all to form a whole- each piece made important by His grace. The ultimate will and work are always God’s.
One loses a loved one… Is there a big picture?
We see the big picture when we step back, leave our own perspective, and take that of the one who sees all. We see the big picture when we detach ourselves from the situation and anchor our being to one who has control of everything. When we move away from our emotions and move toward the heart of a Mighty Creator who loves us personally and unconditionally, that’s when we see the big picture.
What is the big picture?
Everything is important and nothing is as important. Even the smallest is significant to be cherished; and the biggest is insignificant enough to be ignored. The moment should be lived yet be let go. Our Big God makes the Big picture. Through whom we see and respond and react in peace.
What is the big picture?
The big picture is trusting there is when we can’t see one. It is hope there is more than our eyes can see, emotions can feel, and mind comprehend. That which our faith continues to form and hold on until we finally see… without doubt. The big picture is what we see when we Trust in the Love that holds and covers all.
