Recently, my oldest daughter sprained her foot pretty badly. I have done that many times and it is a slow painful recovery. The worst part is that she is in the middle of her soccer season and isn’t able to play. Today, I decided to take her to the game to watch and cheer for her teammates.
One thing she noticed was that watching from the sideline is quite a bit different from being in the game. You have a different vantage point and are able to better see the whole picture.
Sometimes when we are in the middle of the fire all we can see are a few trees around us. But if we will take a step back we can see the entire forest. When we do this, often those huge issues in our life become smaller and more manageable.
What area in your life do you need to view from a different vantage point?
