So often, it is easy to notice all the bad going on in the world and listen to negative things reported by the media. At that very same time, there is so much Good going on if we just look for it. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Proverbs 17:22 reads “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
Today, I will watch for unwelcome thoughts that attempt to steal my joy. I will take responsibility for what I am thinking and I can do this when I cling to God.
