Proverbs 15:30 - A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
Do you tend to see only the bad around you? A ridiculous political scene, hurricanes, devastation of our hearts and homes, family stresses, or a health crisis hitting your loved one can pull you towards the bad? There is always bad out there. But there doesn’t have to be only bad or anxious thoughts. What’s true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy is out there. You just have to turn around 180 degrees, see that God has blessed you with much more than the bad, and bask in the light of his love. Do you struggle with only seeing the bad in life? Turn it over to God and he will send you peace.
