"Our problems seem really big because our God seems really small." (Mark Batterson)
This statement goes right to the core of the issue, doesn't it?
My view of God frames my perspective on the issues, circumstances and dilemmas I face. When I lose sight of the grandness of God, my mind and emotions cause me to see my problems as huge and overwhelming.
Everyday I must see God for who He is. And the only way I've been able to do this is by spending time reading about Him in the Bible, focusing on Him in worship and listening to Him in prayer.
"When I look into Your holiness, when I gaze into Your loveliness, when all things that surround become shadows in the light of You."
