One reason it is helpful to see a counselor or work with a coach or pair up with an accountability partner at church is that we often get locked into one way of seeing things and we don’t even realize there are other choices. One example is how we often see limitations where they don’t exist – because we look at life with a limited, earthly perspective rather than an eternal, spiritual perspective.
We always have the choice to see things differently, and often that frees us up to take action in a situation where we feel stuck, or to extend forgiveness where we might have been holding onto anger. But it’s easier to maintain our faith and our perspective if we have other people in our lives to help.
No need to walk alone or live in frustration. God’s view offers renewal and hope. It’s all about perspective.
