Looking Through a Different Lens

I've been taking advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures this week by getting out early for my morning walk, which has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the day. During the colder months, I used to listen to a favorite podcast while walking later in the day. However, during the Texas summer, I've had to get out early to beat the heat. when walking early in the day, I began using this time as my prayer time, practicing prayer walking, which simply means praying while walking.


This morning, as I was prayer walking, I found myself voicing all my needs to God and asking for help with various aspects of my life. The beginning of the school year is always busy, and as a mom, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. We tend to focus on our shortcomings and feel like we're not doing enough. As I prayed, I began by asking God to help me be the mom I want to be. This led to my praying about my role as a wife and asking for God's wisdom in this area of my life. I was soon praying about my role as daughter to my parents and seeking guidance and help in navigating the changing season that I am playing in this role. This led to my asking for guidance in being the friend I feel I need to be, followed by seeking the help I long for as the businesswoman I want to be. I began to feel panicked and stressed. I thought, "It's too much! How can I possibly do everything I need to do?"


Then, I felt God reminding me that I was looking at things the wrong way. Instead of trying to juggle all my roles perfectly, I just needed to focus on one thing: being a committed Christ-follower. Am I immersing myself in God's word every day? Am I pursuing Him with all my heart? If I prioritize my relationship with God, everything else will fall into place.


Sometimes, we simply need to look at things through a different lens. We will still see the same picture, but it becomes much clearer when it is aligned with God's vision for us.
