This may sound weird, but I love doing headstands. It is very invigorating.
But last night’s headstand was different, as I was upside down, I saw the world differently. Yes, there was still terrible, horrific things happening…COVID-19, unborn babies being murdered, lies, divisions, racism, hatred, fear, abuse, riots, and murder.
But for a brief moment, life stood still. As I watched the waves constantly crash the shore, never stopping, the sun setting, yet again, and never quitting, the birds, without a care, fly with such peace and tranquility, never hungry or afraid, made me realize that we have to see things in the right light.
The Creator of the Universe is still alive! He hasn’t stopped protecting, providing or loving us. The flowers are still growing, the sun is still rising, the rain is still purifying, and most importantly, we are still alive and breathing.
Let’s, humble ourselves and look at things in a different way. Stop looking at all the negativity, and trust the one who created us. He never fails or forgets us. He has everything under control.
“Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow [seed] nor reap [the harvest] nor gather [the crops] into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?” Matthew 6:26
