Keeping my focus on the good in the midst of the bad.

As with many others in the world, COVID hasn’t been the sole focus of our family. In the midst of dealing with that uncertainty, we have also had other issues vying for our attention: loss of electricity for four days, loss of the internet for two weeks (which wouldn’t be a big deal except I work from home), multiple health issues with multiple family members, and the biggest one – septic issues.

After the initial shock wore off from “what’s going to break next?” I started shifting my focus and looking for God’s good in the midst of the inconveniences. And when I looked up and started to take notice, I saw how much good really did come from seemingly bad situations.

What about you? I want to encourage you to look up from the inconveniences, or maybe truly awful situations you’re dealing with, and look to see God in them. He is ALWAYS there … ALWAYS.

If it’s been a while since you’ve had a conversation with God, it’s never too late to start. Begin by inviting Him into whatever you’re facing today, this week, this month, this year and asking Him to show you the good He can (and will) bring into your life.
