Perspective.  It matters.  How you look at someone or something colors the way you feel.  When loss comes into a life—and loss comes into every life—perspective determines how the grief process will be experienced.

Jesus wants us to live with hope.  Even when life’s challenges and sorrows touch us, He died a death and was raised from the dead so that we would always—always—have hope.  Be embraced by His hope today.  Even if you do not feel it, have the faith of a mustard seed.  It is enough to hold on to Christ’s perspective.  He is holding on to you.

Lord Jesus, with faith eyes look to tomorrow with hope.  Thank You, Jesus, for making our perspective Your own.  In Thee, Amen.
