One of the things you get when you move is a new view. From every window you’ll see something new or the same things from a new angle dependent on how far you move. Having a fresh new view is inspiring.
This is one of the great things about climbing a mountain too. To hike to higher altitudes and watch the view from several hundred meters above sea level is fresh and gives a sense of overview and control. I believe it is the wide perspective that impresses me the most along with the fact that all the small hills just flatten out.
To get a new perspective I need to change position, move my body or just climb something. It is almost impossible to look at something from a different angle without changing position. I have to stretch my mind, meet new people, open new doors and generally be curious.
I wonder how it all looks from God’s perspective. Yes I know he knows everything and doesn’t really get surprised by anything. But how would I understand things if I managed to see things from his angle? I am trying to do this. I believe the Bible is telling me a lot about God’s thoughts, intentions, ideas, opinions and perspective. Therefore I dig in to the stories and words trying to understand him. He says he wants the best for us. How would he like me to respond to that? And what does he really make of me and my life these days?
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
I aim to be open to new views.Bible ref; Romans 12,2 Annonser
