Whenever I seem to lose focus or feel discouraged - I know enough now to know that I need a fresh burst of perspective. And the best source is still the very Word of God. Even as a pastor I need to consistently re-commit myself to focusing on His Word and gaining God's perspective.
If you need perspective today - I encourage you - GET INTO THE WORD OF GOD! And ask Holy Spirit to speak to your heart and still your mind. Ask Him to give you direction. He will never fail you. God is speaking to you today!
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are you ways My ways," said the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your way, And My thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8,9
