Seeing Life from God's View
June 9, 2009 9:14pm CST
The way you see your life shapes your life. How you define life determines your destiny. Your perspective will influence how you invest your time, spend your money, use your talents, and value your relationships. One of the best ways to understand other people is to ask them, How do you see your life?" You will discover that there are as many different answers to that question as there are people. I've been told to life is a circus, a minefield, a roller coaster, a puzzle, a symphony, a journey and a dance. People have said, "Life is a carousel: Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down, and sometimes you just go round and round" or "life is ten speed bicycle with gears we never use" or "Life as a game of cards: You have to play the hand you are dealt." If I asked how you picture life, what image would come to your mind? That image is your life metaphor. It's the view of life that you hold, consciously or unconsciously, in your mind. It's your description of how life works what you expect from it. People often express their life metaphors though clothes, jewerly, cars, hairstyles, bumper stickers, even tattoos. What is your Life? "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."

This is actually a good discussion. I believe that life can only be fulfilled when we have God in us. I don't think I would enjoy life if I did not have a relationship with God. I see life where we were all given a task and that we should be a role model to other people in such way. Life has its ways of bringing our spirits down but I know that God is only testing us to see if He can give us what we are asking from Him. I tell you, seeing life from God's point of view is oamazing. YOu will just not see how good He is but how things are better when we put Him first in our lives.
