I believe that great changes in life come as a result of small adjustments in our thinking. As Christians we must allow our tender and compassionate God to bend our view toward His treasures and our good. When we allow Him to work in this way, slightly moving us and bending us toward Himself, we not only change our perspective but we change ourselves. Those changes in us can become powerful change agents in the world.

I took these photos after dropping the kids off at school. The difference between the top and the bottom picture is only ONE INCH in my position.

“Lord, I am stubborn and many times unmovable. I often proclaim judgements over circumstances before you had a chance working them out. Please help me to bend toward the Light of your Son and living in the assurance that you are always good. Show me Jesus and give me the strength to move into your direction of loving kindness.” 

In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    Well done and thank you, Heidi! Your photos speak a thousand words in support of your statement about perspective. The start of a new year provides an opportune time to pray that day by day in 2019 and beyond (God willing), we might bend closer and closer to His Light.
