Seen this picture a hundred times all over the Internet…and it still makes me think each time. Perspective can be everything. Maybe right now God has you in a place you long to escape. Yet when you view your situation from His perspective, it all makes sense.
So the question remains: would you rather be the guy on the island or the guy in the boat?
“Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
(Philippians 4:11-13 NASB)
