“Harnessing Your Emotions: Week 4″
Podcast: “Change Your Perspective, Change Your Emotions”
It never ceases to amaze me that two people can look at the very same item and see two completely different things. Some say the glass is half empty. Others say it is half full. One person calls it an antique. Another says it’s just old. I might call it trash. You may know it’s a treasure.
I am convinced that many of the troubles we face in life could be easily overcome if we would simply envision them through a different lens. To stay on an even keel emotionally, we must look at life with a heavenly perspective.
2 Corinthians 4:18, “We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
In life, there are always two sides to everything: The temporal and the eternal; The reality (what we see) and the Truth (what God sees); There is the potential problem and the potential solution. In everything, the carnal man sees the potential problem. The spiritual man sees the potential solution. Said another way… The carnal man or woman sees the difficulty in every opportunity. The spirit led man or woman sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
In every situation, you have a choice to make. All that could go wrong or all that could go right? Carnal or Spiritual? Earthly or Heavenly? The choice is yours. But I can promise you this… If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.
This podcast, based on Andrew Wommack’s book, “Harnessing Your Emotions,” takes a look at the role perspective plays in handling life’s challenges. I encourage you to take a few minutes and listen in. Even if you aren’t a Christian, I guarantee you, you will be glad to gain these great insights.
