As I was driving down the road the other day, I saw the ugliest guy I think I have ever seen in my life!
As I approached and actually saw the face I realized that this was not a guy nor was he ugly but this was, in fact one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen.
It was then that I realized that the sun’s reflection off of my dashboard is what made it look like an ugly guy as opposed to the beautiful woman that was truly there.
It got me to thinking and I wondered how often we do that. How often do we see something with a reflection that completely throws off our perception of what it really is? How often is God trying to show us something wonderful and beautiful and we can’t see it because there is something terrible, heartbreaking, heart-wrenching, or just pitiful in our lives? How often can’t we see the truth behind the hurt? The fear? The anger?
For me this was a great reminder of why letting go is so very important. Letting go is such a hard thing to remember and an even harder thing to do and yet it’s the thing that keeps our lives moving forward. It’s what keeps us from having a hardened heart. Letting go keeps us from allowing a hurt to keep us from loving and cherishing.
So what is the ‘ugliest man’ that you need to look past today in order to get the true meaning of life back into your life?
