Perspective is Everything!

So many times we look at our circumstances as curses or punishment. Could it be that we are being pressed to become better? Olive oil is derived from pressed olives. Pure olive oil is a refined product. You are being pressed & refined, and the final product will bring you to a purer, higher level!

Just a reminder: Our God is more interested in our growth vs. what we achieve. The process is more valuable than the product, because if the process has not refined or perfected the product, it cannot last through tests, trials, failures & disappointments. The unrefined/untested product will even fail when great things happen, because success has its own weight.

We are that product.

I want to endure & not just exist or survive. I won’t allow the distractions to prevent me from going through the process.

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14 (NIV)
