Did you ever notice that you often find what you are looking for?
Are you looking for ways to be hurt, offended, annoyed, frustrated or justified? Or are you looking for ways to encourage, bless, love, and celebrate?
If you look for trouble, it’s easy to find. But if you look for ways to encourage people, that could be easy to find too. It’s all in the attitude.
When I have been supremely irritated with Don (and unfortunately, I have been) EVERYTHING he did annoyed me. His walk, his cough, his sneeze–his everything. Thankfully I haven’t been in that kind of space in a long time!!! But when I am grateful for Don’s presence in my life, it’s almost as if he can do no wrong. Almost. Don just goes about his daily ‘Don-ness’ but where I ‘am’ often determines whether he is frustrating. It’s in my attitude.
What are you looking for today? If you have a moment, look at an online Bible or in your concordance and look up ‘seek’. Check out a few verses. What is it God wants you to seek? Ask Him to show you.
