A Matter of Perspective

I love this!! I got it from Cheryl Scrugg's blog ...

So....most of us see wounding as an awful thing. But it does not have to be. Let's look at it from a different perspective. I am reading an interesting book that addresses this topic. It says that "at the time wounding takes place it is very difficult but necessary to look at what happened in new and fresh ways. We must stop repeating to ourselves and others the details of the events or people that caused us the pain. The reason is not to deny the facts but to push ourselves out of the seduction of tunnel vision and into a broader landscape that could reveal to us incredible opportunities for growth. We must ask ourselves hard questions like are we in a cauldron of pain or smack dab in the middle of opportunity? Should I fret and whine or can I see this suffering as God's Hand pulling me into new story".....a new place He wants me to be? Love this quote: "Suffering cracks the boundaries of what we thought we could stand. And yet, through these cracks sprout seeds of healing and transformation."

Praise the Lord for healing and restoration. What a good reminder this morning!
