This morning, I was woken up at 4.45am by my baby, who is unwell. So as we set out to take photographs this week, my head was not feeling altogether sharp. The sun was shining, which is always a bonus in the UK, but we had missed the good light. To say I was struggling to find inspiration would be an understatement. I prayed that the Lord would speak to me as we walked along the towpath. The leaf buds are just starting to poke their heads out from the branches, as spring sets in over here. A few people were out walking their dogs. It was a wonderful morning. I was walking along feeling a sense of peace and His presence, but not much photographically.
At the end of the walk, I climbed up a little hill thinking I had finished with the shoot. When I saw that the boat I had been photographing was in a much better position to shoot. I felt the Lord say to me that sometimes we just need a change of perspective. We need to go up to Him and look at the world and our own lives from His perspective. Sometimes we just get stuck where we are, up, close and personal. The questions I am asking Him today are: what situation in my own life needs heaven’s perspective? Where does my outlook need to change? What are His thoughts on these situations?
