Gamechanger – with Matthew West
You’ve probably experienced ah-ha moments, when something happened to flip your perspective from the positive to the negative. Perspective is essential to every area of your life.
Five-time GRAMMY® nominee, Christian music songwriter/artist, Matthew West said, “I always had this image – I put a ladder up against a building, and I spend my whole life climbing that ladder. And what scares me is to get to the top of that ladder, to look around and to realize I had it up against the wrong building.”
We are from God; the one who knows God listens to us; the one who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
– 1 John 4:6 NASB
“I believe the ultimate perspective is a game changer in our lives,” Matthew shared. He constantly asks, “Lord was my perspective right, or am I just singing this song and pretending that I was aiming in the right direction?”
Let the ultimate perspective be a game changer in your life.
Matthew believes a lot of his songs are about working out perspective in his own life. He writes them, sings them and shares them with us, “Then [the songs] return to me and remind me of perspective, priorities and what matters most.”
Hopefully, the last couple of years have reminded you how important it is that we look at the troubled world we live in through the lens of eternity. And no matter what you’ve endured in this crazy season of life, to remember the perspective of Heaven is the only perspective that gives you hope.
You are from God, and your focus, your perspective should be from His viewpoint. When you see things from His truth, His love and His Word, it completely changes the game.
