"Approach problems with a light touch. When your mind moves toward a problem area, you tend to focus on that situation so intensely that you lose sight of Me. You pit yourself against the difficulty... There is a better way... bring this matter to Me. Talk with me and look at it in the Light of My Presence... Approach problems with a light touch by viewing them in My revealing Light." (334)
The ability to gain perspective on a troubling situation really changes its potential impact. Viewing it from several perspectives can be so helpful...even making some problems rather insignificant. We are especially blessed because God's grand perspective on life is the perspective we can claim for ourselves. What could be an overwhelming day becomes an overcoming day, simply with an adjusted perspective!
Rather than getting so absorbed in the throes of some battle, we can turn to a God who sees the way out, straight into victory! It's like having that huge advantageous big-picture perspective in every situation.

God sees ahead and knows that life will soon be flowing again. Things will make sense and He will help me handle every situation from...
His Higher Perspective...dmc
