When you were born, the world changed. No one exactly like you had ever been here. A chain of events triggered your birth, and there was a specific moment when you came to be. And at that moment you became part of a story that was going on when you arrived.
Some things about your part were decided for you. You were born at a certain time, which you did not choose. Your mom and dad brought you here, and you did not get to choose who they were. You arrived at a place in the world decided without your input. And you were given a race and an ethnic heritage you did not select. These things happened outside of your control. But since then, you’ve been given many choices for how your life is lived.
In my new book, I introduce four different lenses. My prayer is that they will offer a new way to see your life. When Jesus says “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” (Matt.6:22), he targets our eyes as a determining factor for our life of faith. The goal of my book is to give you a tool for healthy eyes.
The big view lens will help you pull back and see the breadth and power of your life. The present view lens will bring new focus to what is in front of you and help you consider the weight each moment can bring. The rear view lens will bring clarity to how your past is affecting you and build your faith for what is ahead. And the higher view lens will deepen and expand your vision to look at what God wants you to see.
My hope is that through these lenses, you will learn to embrace your life—the good, the bad, the hard, and the spectacular. And with the ability to reframe your life and see all that it already is, you may start to live it differently.
The simple truths of this book will invite you to lean in, receive what comes, and live each moment to God’s glory.
This is your time on earth. Open your eyes and live.
