Keeping Perspective

Frustration. Discontentment. Sadness. Stress.
Yeah that pretty much sums up this past week…
At least from a limited perspective.
What about the prayer circle I had with my band last night?
What about the God given conversation I had with my hair stylist yesterday?
What about the lunch I had with Ashlee yesterday that calmed my heart?
What about Crusade last week when God met me where I was at and I could feel his presence?
What about that moment at worship practice last night when I realized how I blessed I am by my friends that I laughed out loud while singing because I couldn’t contain my thanks?
What about my plaid rain boots that keep my feet toasty and dry through all of the puddles?
What about the fact that I really do love the rain?
What about the fellowship I have, given to me by a powerful yet interested God?
In light of these blessings, my frustrations (the rain pouring through the window right now at work, the homework load I have with not a second to get it done, the severe lack of sleep I am fighting through, having to ride my motorcycle in the pouring rain, not being able to go to bible study, and the antsyness I have been feeling about everything) seem so small.

I have replayed this song over and over today:
"Remain" -Starfield
Defender of this heart
You loved me from the start
You never change
Through the highs and lows
As seasons come and go
You never fail
Day after day
Your love will remain
Faithful and true
You are good

You are God with us
You're victorious
You are strong and mighty to save
For Your word stands true
There is none like You
And when all else fades
You remain

When troubles come my way
You guide and You sustain
Lead me, I pray
Forever You will be
The great eternal King
Now and always
