Finding Something Good

Finding Something Good
September 7, 2019
I have been in the desert now for almost three years, and I have complained at times about it. It feels like many people here are anti-social and not kind. Earlier today at the market, there were two shopping carts left. There was a middle age woman who got to the sopping carts first and said out loud “which one is more good”. She took the one that wobbles and left the good one for us. In that moment, I felt so in awe of the goodness of God, and the kindness of this stranger. There is a verse I am thinking of:

8 Brothers and sisters, think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. (Philippians 4:8)

There are times when I think too much about the negative, but even in a place where so many people are not kind, there can still be something good.


Heavenly Father, thank You for showing us Your goodness, and giving us moments when we can pause and be thankful. Please help us to focus on the good, those things that are beautiful and praise worthy.
