A Sea of Love

When you hold a coin close enough to your eye, you can hide almost everything in sight -even the wonderful sunset that is unfolding right before your very eyes. You simply cannot see it, because you are focusing on the coin and not the bigger picture.

It is all about perspective, right?

Don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. Don’t lose sight of the ultimate sacrifice on the cross. Don’t lose perspective on your eternity in the context of your everyday life.

Be wary of getting caught up in:

1 – the rat race (career, money, success, the billionaires, YMCMB)

2 – your comfort (financial security, the couch)

3 – what people think of you (i.e. your identity, fitting in, acceptance of the world)

4 – the entertainment distraction (the youtubes, memes, facebooks, instagrams, snapchats, series, movies)

5 – pride

6 – my personal list goes on and on and on…

The cross will be there when the sun sets and the cross will be there when the sun rises.

And behind the cross sits a Father with a torrential rain of unrelenting love.

  1. These are really great points to think of 🙂 as you move away from these you will find yourself, purpose and passion!

    1. Sometimes we just have to step away, have a cup of tea and realise what the important things in life really are – it will help us to unearth the passions that are obscured by the coin we hold up to against our eyes!

      1. This is so true! It can be so hard to disconnect from reality and do this but it makes all the difference!
