Godly perspective via waiting rooms and doctors offices.
God is teaching me so much about perspective through my relationship with my daughter. I had to take my four year old Kenzie to the doctor to get five shots for preschool. FIVE. That might as well be 100 million for a little girl. I even had to be the one that held her down for them. THAT was tough on me. If you were to ask her on the way over to the doctor if her daddy loved her, you might get a hesitant response at best. But if you asked her when she was just a few years older as a teenager, she probably will have a completely different perspective that might thank me for what I did that day. My daughter would be silly to judge my character on one event. I need to realise that I would be silly to judge God based on the immediate unknowns in my families’ life.
Our faith for our future goes beyond the circumstantial faith that limits us to what we see around us and what we experience. Whether that’s being short of a job, cash, girlfriend, car, friend, blender, or a complete set of crayons in a box, our faith needs to be in the unseen like it says in Hebrews 11:1, talking about “being sure of what we hope for, and the conviction for things not yet seen”.
After all, it’s just a shot.
