The other day, Kendra was trying to pick out a donut. She got as close as she could to the donut case, but no matter how much she hopped and jumped, she just couldn’t get a good view of what was inside. Finally, I gently pulled her back and told her, “Sometimes when you step away from it, you can see it better.”
It struck me that this statement is true in life as well. Sometimes, we are so close to a situation, so intensely involved, that a solution seems just out of our reach. Yet, when we allow ourselves to step away from the problem for a bit and ask for the Lord’s help, He will many times give us a clear solution that we couldn’t see when we tried to solve it ourselves. We are given a new perspective.


  1. Why did Kendra get to pick out a donut?!?!?!
