My husband and I live in an old ranch style house that was built in 1975. It's been remodeled more times than I can count. Room additions, updating, new kitchen, new bathrooms and so on. Our regular red brick ranch is now a sprawling ranch! Everything was new except the windows! Those old aluminum windows allowed dust and noise to penetrate them and impaired our vision because of the screens and the old glass. It wasn't until we replaced them that our vision became clearer. It was just like getting new glasses, except for our house! We began to notice things we've never seen before! It was transforming! The same thing happens when you change your perspective to an eternal one. It's just like getting new windows to your soul! The noise of this world no longer rattles you. You're free from all the dust and dirt that was coming in before, and you can live your life without the worry of what tomorrow will bring, because your life is secure in Jesus.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3
