Do you need a new perspective?

It all started with those dreaded words, “We have to talk.” It ended with me up a ladder with a bucket changing Kathy’s perspective.

How are your windows?

It wasn't frosted glass!

This week’s video is about perspective.

Is your perspective clouded by painful past events or things you learned long ago that are no longer true?

Do you have a negative or positive perspective?

To live a transformed life you need a clear view of life and God’s perspective.

Just grab a bucket and click to get the details of what happened to me.

Share the transformed life, send this to a friend.

Now I want to hear from you.

Have you had an experience where God changed your perspective and it made a huge difference in your life? Just leave your answer in the comment section below.

Talk to you next week.

  1. Grant,i love your e-mail web letters.Keep “em” comin. And i thought i was the only guy who had the nerve to where the peachy-pink colored top.Love it….Ernie.

  2. Yes, all my life I have been somewhat fearful…when out of my comfort zone. My reply when ever I talked about it was, “It’s been this way ALL my life.” A couple months ago I went to a seminar not really knowing why, during the teaching the speaker made a statment that trauma can happen right in the womb, iInstantly, the Lord reminded me of a story my mother once mentioned. She said when she was 8 months pregnant with me she took a bus to her sisters, telling my father. ” when your cousin moves out and finds another place to live, call, and I will come home.” Well it only took a week for Dad to made other arrangements, but, the Lord had me relive the tension between the two women as she was carrrying me. And as I spent time in His prescence I heard him speak into my Spirit. “Donna, I’m sorry you were in your Mother’s womb and had to experience all her pent up frustration BUT I had a plan and I was not going to let anyone come between their marriage.” Once God revealed the source of my anxiety it has been a steady process forward!!!!! And the paralyzing fear has left to the point that I look forward to new things!!!!

  3. Hi Grant, thanks for these short stories.My wife and I always watch it together and there is always something in it from God for us. I am always glad to hear your honesty about your own situation linked to a specific message. It is clear and uplifting.All the best, Derek. (Hamilton, New Zealand)

  4. Yep, my windows are dirty__ does Kathy do lessons on this technique?? Seems like it works a treat!

    Good word Grant, our friends have bought a 100 year old house and some of their windows have very old ripply glass and the view is somewhat distorted__ I guess there is that aspect too __ maybe looking through very old windows and the view has got a bit distorted over time?? __ throw open the windows and see the view from to-days new perspective.

  5. I JUST WANTED TO SAY HOW MUCH I ENJOY THESE CLIPS BECAUSE THEY HELP ME TO BECOME AWARE OF THINGS I HADN’T SEEN BEFORE.THE LORD HAS BEEN HELPING ME IN THE AREA OF RELATIONSHIPS BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN A HUGE PROBLEM FOR ME. I’VE PRETTY MUCH ALLOWED PEOPLE TO WALK ALL OVER ME AND PUT UP WITH THEIR CONTROL AND MANIPULATIONS, WITHOUT SETTING BOUNDARIES BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO DO SO.MY PERSPECTIVE HAS BEEN CHANGING AND NOW I’M SEEING SO CLEARLY THE HURT AND WOUNDEDNESS THAT I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH BECAUSE OF UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS.THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP..GOD BLESS..

  6. I enjoy listening to your messages. They are always food for thought and change. I will share this one with my SS class on Sunday. Thanks!

  7. From childhood I heard you are not good enough, you failed (even when I got 99% in an exam – 1 % taken off because no bullet point after my name at top of paper). I heard women are useless ( at five yrs approx I wished I had been born a boy). I strived to do my best in order to gain the approval of my parents – mostly my father but I never heard the words well done. I heard non stop criticism and indeed I became very critical and demandinig of others.(cringe).
    When my “windows were cleaned” I could see that God’s view of me as his precious child who did not have to do anything to be accepted or loved. I became compassionate and less judgemental/critical but could view others with a different heart – these people dont’ need more disapproval but love and help to heal the hurts
    of the past. I discover new thinigs about my self ad how God loves me just as I am and He is changing me daily!

  8. Just a further thought……. once we clean the windows they don’t stay clean by themselves…… they need constant upkeep …. remain in the vine…” I am the vine you are the branches… John 15 V 1 – 17……. I am the true vine and my father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful … I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete”
    I used to see this as harsh action …. punishment for the wrong actions in my life but with a new perspective the picture is very different…. when I go into the garden to my own plants .. if I do not water them they die.. if I do not cut off the dead heads very few new blooms appear but when I feed the plant, water it and remove the dead heads regularly the plants flourish and it brings much joy for me as the gardener and to others observing. This is God’s view of us .. we can bring much joy to Him, ourselves and to others…….. Old thinking.. was rules to keep .. new thinking … an exciting adventure…………

  9. I’m always amazed at how life looks different when we do take God’s perspective. Negative feelings, negative talk, damaging behaviors are changed when we remember Who it is we are serving and Who loves us more than anyone.

  10. Grant ! Was so good to see & hear you again, you pack so much into a mini lesson. Knobby & I are with Shiloh Place & often reccomend your book to others. Each day, if we let it is new experience in the way we live life & love it.
