This is so hard to do at times. In Christian recovery, this is part of the daily inventory. we focus on the negatives 99% of the time. We don't see the spiritual battle going on around us. In knowing this, we can always see a worse scenario than the one we are in now. Thank God for that! We are breathing! There is a reason for us still breathing. Thank Him for that!

commonly I forget to notice all the good that has happened; all the things God is doing in my life. I try and remember to be grateful for at least three things each day and exam to see where God was each day.

With everything that is going on in the world today. Let us rejoice in the world GOD created. I keep hearing stories of flood victim's in Texas that are singing praises to the Heavenly Father. Saved by Grace.

Awesome, Living, and Loving God, we come to you today to thank You for all the bright spots You put in our lives. Everyday we start out in another day in Your awesome creation, and we rejoice in that. At times we will have rough days, and face many challenges, but nothing we can't handle with You by our side. No matter what the circumstances, we can press forward with and trough the strength You give us. Praying in the name of our strength, Jesus Christ. Amen.

DAY 242: Looking For The Bright Spots

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Life is built to be a celebration of your journey through God's creation - with God. Yes, there will be days that just, suck. However, there will be many more days when you are full of life and joy!

God's men are built to not only survive, but flourish. How we handle ourselves through adversity is our witness to God in us - through us.  We don't chase the shadows, we look for the bright spots!

Men, If this isn't your life verse, maybe you can adopt it as a place holder until you pick one.
