Another way to gain new perspective for me, which works every time, is reading, and in my personal case, reading my bible. Oh I know the bible is a little hard to understand for many of us, but I find if I persevere, and keep reading until I find one phrase or sentence to help me change my thinking, then it is well worth the effort.
Here is one of my favourite scriptures, it always gives me a lift. It is from the old testament of the bible, Deuteronomy 31:6. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified…for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.” What a promise, a promise which I believe with all of my heart. Knowing God is with me gives me comfort. Comfort gives me strength, strength to aim for some new perspective.
