In our society, people have misplaced their belief in God and forgot how gracious and good He really is. God gets blamed for things that would embarrass the devil himself. How would you feel if you were falsely accused? None of us would tolerate that, yet God constantly gets accused of not caring because something happened to us that was negative, or we didn't get what we wanted. Our faith must be deeper and stronger than that. Our faith shouldn't be based on circumstances, but on God's promise that He is true to His word. We have to stand up and live what we believe now more than ever. If you believe in God's Word, believe all of it, not just the parts you like. Don't be moved by every little thing that goes wrong, but try to be a person of substance who's not easily sidetracked. Today, and every day, let's be appreciative of all the good things we have. Let's focus on what is going right in our lives; only then will your view of life change for the better.
Just a Thought,
