I like Mondays. It's the fresh start of a new week. You may be thinking that I am crazy. It's just another day of work, like all the rest. We both face the same day so why does it look so different.
There is a fine line between having everything skewed by your perspective and seeing things differently. If two people look at a glass that is 50% full, one will see it half full, the other half empty. The reality of the glass is not skewed by a misaligned or filtered lens, it is simply how you choose to view it. One person may have grown up from a place of want and the other from a place of plenty and either could have one or the other view.
Hope, for some, may just be looking at the glass half full. For others, it is an informed perspective of someone who knows things that could affect the outcome. Faith is then just believing in the possible result.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Heb 11:1
I have always been a glass-half-full kind of guy. Some called it gullible, fanciful, and unrealistic. People in scripture were called worse things.
Paul says we see through a glass dimly, but someday we will see clearly (1 Cor 13:12). I see God everywhere. Is it because I choose to see Him or because He is all around us? How will you look at your circumstances today? God said He is always with us. Do you see Him? If not, ask Him to reveal Himself. He is there.
