This was a Focus on the Family broadcast that I really enjoyed.
Regardless of your circumstances God can give you a new perspective. Laurie Polich Short, author of “When Changing Nothing Changes Everything“, she shares what it means to re frame your perspective through four lenses: the big view, the present view, the rear view, and the higher view. She shares how things that seemed bad in her life, such as prolonged singleness, a broken engagement, the challenges of being a stepmom, and even a broken washing machine she’s seen God work together for good. It’s a powerful reminder that regardless of your circumstances God has a plan and a purpose.

When Changing Nothing Changes Everything by Laurie Polich Short
Reframing your perspective can transform your life.
We often face circumstances that we cannot change―a job we are forced to keep, a relationship that did not work out, a decision we cannot take back. The stress of life can overwhelm us, and we may not see past the obstacles in our path. In the face of unwanted challenges, we may despair over our lack of control and long for an easier way out.
Laurie Short offers a simple but revolutionary idea: change nothing that is around you yet still change everything about your life. With the help of four different lenses, Laurie shows how the way you see can have an impact on how you live. If you put on the right lenses, you can reframe whatever comes your way and embrace both the good and the bad, recognizing that every detail of your life is fully in God’s sovereign hands.
Jesus indicates the power of focus when he says, “The eye is the lamp of the body, if the eye is good then the whole body will be full of light.”
It’s the easiest way to find lasting meaning and purpose. Change nothing, but see differently. Your perspective has more power than you think to determine the course of your life.
