Perspective is everything.

From Evernote:

Perspective is everything.

Most of our problems are not circumstantial. Most of our problems are perceptual. -Mark Batterson

…the greatest tragedy in life is someone whose god gets smaller and smaller with each passing day. -Mark Batterson

AW Tozer so famously states that a man’s life is determined fully by what comes to his mind when he thinks of God. Perspective being everything…as he states a "low view of God is the cause of a hundred lesser evils"…while the person with a high view of God "is relieved of ten thousand temporal issues." Our circumstances are not the challenge in life, it is our perception and perspective from which we view them. Action. My sons…make it a daily goal in life to deepen your understanding, knowledge and enjoyment of God. Strong, faithful men are men of far, ever-expanding horizons…encountering life with a deep, ever-increasing faith and zeal in God. The blessed man evidences maturity; stable and consistent reminding himself that its perspective in life that is key…refusing to fret over the circumstance but instead focusing on the stewarding of his thoughts, adjusting his perception and perspective in light of the true character of God.
