The bigger picture always looks shiny, new, fresh…simply amazing! Obtaining the bigger picture usually comes at a price. The journey it takes to get the prize is no walk in the park. It is more like a walk in the big bad woods. Focusing on the bigger picture always helps me to walk through the treacherously scary parts. When I walk with God, light is shed on scary shadows and the creatures of the dark. Then I see there is nothing to fear. Finding enjoyment in the process always helps me to find joy in the perseverance that builds character and stamina. Look at the bigger picture!
