No doubt the World is a mean place right now. Actually it has been for some time, but our various ‘connections’ keep us informed faster, longer. It may seem there is no escape from bad news. I find myself getting caught up in it, maybe even being an agent of it at times, with my political comments. While it may be a good thing to sound the alarm when ‘the enemy’ is at the gate, we should not dwell on the evil, lest it become part of us. God tells us in His Word…
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” ~ Philippians 4:8
I really want to get to a point in my walk with Him that I will be able to see past the evil, the chaos, the fog of daily cares…..And know… His beauty is always there. His call is still a noble endeavor. His people are still His and they are loved. His Gospel is still the good news and a virtuous life style is still to be sought. Last but not least…..He is worthy of my praise!….It would appear, I have many reasons to be grateful….And to be more positive.
