What Do You See?

When you look at this picture what do you see?

Do you tend to say... "Look at the traffic."  "Bummer, the day looks gray,"  "Don't those people know motorcycles are so dangerous."  "Boy, that building needs a lot of work." 

Or do you tend to say... "Whoa, cool building!"  "Look at those amazing streets!" "Look at the pretty puffy clouds!" "How much fun does that look like on those motorcycles!" 

Now I am going to ask you... In your personal life, wether you are just going through an ordinary day or one of the biggest crises' you have ever been in... In the same way, what are you looking at and how are you viewing it?  What are you amplifying in your life?

It's a scary thing to sometimes do this but so very worth it... Talk to God and say "Father, help me to see things the way you do and reveal to me where I have not been seeing things right.  reveal to me where I am seeing the worst of things and literally magnifying the bad in others. Help me to live a life of thanksgiving and seeing all the beauty around and actually being a vessel to impart the Light of Christ in my personal life.  Help me to begin to walk in the Light... "  

God will blow your mind as you have courage enough to pray this.  Your life will turn into living color.  You will now be on a fresh path of life with the God of Love. 

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
— Philippians 4:8
