Premium Perspective

"Out of control...not running smoothly...shaken...loss of comfort." (110) This sounds so typical of the circumstances and lives around us...even my own life many times! The comfort zone is long gone!
True security comes only in Him. But to look at these times as "growth opportunities" rather than "bemoaning the loss of (our) comfort" or even the loss of a hopeful expectation can stretch us further than we've gone before!
Accepting "the challenge of something new" when that "something new" is NOT what we would have planned is the premium perspective that has the potential of leading us "on from glory to glory" and preparing us for eternity!

Lord, help me to take on Your Premium Perspective! For I know that my thoughts are not Your thoughts, and my ways are not Your ways...just like heaven is higher than the earth, so Your ways are much higher than my ways, and Your thoughts are far beyond my thoughts. Amen!
(Is. 55:8-9)

Stretching into the Uncomfortable ...dmc


  1. Dawn Marie, Thank you for sharing the scripture in Isaiah, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord! It is a great reminder for me that I may not understand why I am going through what I am, but God’s does and He “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, Jeremiah 29:11. I also like Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” When times get tough, I need to listen to the voice of truth!

    But the voice of truth tells me a different story
    The voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
    The voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
    Out of all the voices calling out to me
    I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
