As the end of the year approaches, it is a time to reflect on the past months. A time to pull all the strands together of the days and seasons we have experienced. To see everything in the right perspective it is important that we draw God into this process and ask Him to show us what He wants us to see. To ask Him to show us the things we should be pleased we have accomplished or become, as well as the things that we could/ should have handled better or worked smarter in.
There was a time I used to self-reflect using only my mind and perspective. The result was me giving myself unrealistic expectations that left me feeling unfulfilled and frustrated. Because I did not have the God Perspective, I was pretty much blind to the really important things in life and what God wanted to do in it. It was like having the wrong prescription glasses on; I could guess what I was seeing but it was hit and miss.
As the end of this year approaches, I encourage you to join me in inviting God to show us what He wants us to see and how He wants us to see it. It is simple, just pray “God show me everything through your eyes”.
