Five Minute Friday: Good
There is so much wrong in the world. So much negative. I loathe watching the news. Hate it with a passion. There's never anything good.
Recently, I wrote a blog post about a bad week I was having and then making the choice to focus on the positive. Each day, that is what I will try to do when things don't seem to be going my way.
Why? Well, because of Jesus.
You see, I have this relationship with Him. He has been so good to me, and I owe it to Him to be the best I can be....for Him.
He loves me.
On this Good Friday, as I read scripture with my children, I am reminded that, although brutal, Jesus' death was good. It had to happen. It was in God's plan. Had Jesus not died for me that day, I would have no hope.
For me, looking for the good, having that hope, is a way to honor Jesus. It is pleasing to him. When I can praise Him in my storms, that can show others that my faith, my hope is in Him. Jesus is my all in all. He made the ultimate sacrifice for me. The least I can do is look for the good and help others to see that regardless of what's wrong in the world, that there is still hope. There's still Jesus.
Thank you for sharing this Good Friday with me. I pray that you and your family focus on Jesus. If you don't know Him personally, seek Him. And remember. A lot can happen in 3 days.
