What Do You See? ~ Sunday Devotion
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 (NIV)
When you look around, do you see the goodness of the Lord?
A few years ago, we started looking for a new car. Once I decided on a Camry, I saw them everywhere. Were there suddenly more of them on the road? Or, did I just notice them because they were now on my mind all the time? The car was on my mind, so I noticed it.
Give it a try. Pick a car, a color, a word. Focus on it. Think about it. Then go about your regular business but notice what happens. That thing will start popping up everywhere!

Several years ago, I started a gratitude journal. At first, I’d spend a few minutes at the end of the day reflecting on the day, then I would list three things that came up for me that I was grateful for. Eventually, I started noticing multiple things throughout the day. Some days, my gratitude list has three things on it by noon. Why? I started to see the goodness of the Lord throughout the day. Looking for blessings was top of mind and so I noticed His goodness all around me.
Action Step: When you look around, what do you see? It’ll tell you a lot about what your mind is focusing on. Are you seeing what you’d like to see? If not, you can change it by changing your thoughts. You’ll see the goodness of the Lord when you set your focus on Him.
