In the face?





In the face? You know, it’s easy to miss the big picture when we’re so focused on the little details that distract us. When it comes to God’s blessings, we should always be on alert for the little ones that might be overshadowed by life’s bigger picture.


Think about it. We should never become so focused on the “big” goals of life that we miss out on the little blessings along the way.


God’s Word tells us: “‘Surely I will deliver you for a good purpose; surely I will make your enemies plead with you in times of disaster and times of distress’” (John 15:11).


We should never become so focused on the “big” goals of life that we miss out on the little blessings along the way! Focusing beyond the mess as opposed to the mess itself can make the discomfort and pain not only bearable, at times; it can make it a blessing. There is neat stuff out there combined with all of life’s messes. What a shame it would be to miss any of it because we were preoccupied with the bad when all the time the good was staring us in the face.


We pray. “Heavenly Father, thank You that the joy of the Lord is my strength. Help me to abide in You, always, so that I may be joyful, fruitful, and bring much glory to You. Remind me daily Lord that my joy in this life is founded in You and not in the things and events of this life. In Jesus name we pray, Amen!


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
