Isn't it amazing how we can all look through the same window, and yet we all may see different things?
I'm one of those people who opens the blinds first thing every morning......why is it, that opening those window shutters is something that I do each and every day?
Because: ~~~~~ I want to see the brightness that shines through my windows. I want to see what the world looks like outside. I'm inquisitive about what the day is going to bring. It's almost as if I'm obsessed with the light.
I know that there are people who never open their blinds.....no matter what time of day it is. This is not to say that they are depressed or that they are anti-social. This is just what they choose to do.
I feel sure that if Sam and I were both standing at the window, looking outside together, there would be some things that would catch both of our eyes. Especially if it's movement of any kind. But....I'm pretty certain that I would see things that he would not see and he would focus in on things that I might not notice.
Perhaps it's not a window that we are looking through. Maybe it's life....or school....or church....or work. We all will see things in a different light. Do our differences give us reason to judge or to be judged? Not at all. We are to be humble and kind, even when others see things different from the way we see them.
My desire is to train my soul to allow the light to shine through me in every way possible. Listen: There will be people who will do everything in their power to snuff out your light...to snuff out the beauty that you see out your window. The good news is: Cloudy days fade but the glory of God will NEVER fade away. God's Glory shines all around us and NO ONE, NO THING can take that away from us.........................
No matter what area of life it is.....if it's looking out my bedroom window each day, or if its dealing with issues in life.....I'm going to look for the beauty that God has planned for me.
For me....I see it like this.....This is my window and I choose to see Good. I choose to see the things that make me happy and I refuse to allow shadows to dampen my party!!!!!!!
