Reflect Upon God's Goodness

How often do we stop and reflect on how amazing God is? Unfortunately, I think we sometimes fail to recognize God's greatness until something good happens in our life. It shouldn't take an ACT of greatness for us to realize how amazing our Lord is. Let me suggest that we think more often about the goodness of God. Whether you stop and think about the earth He created, the fact that He knows everybody in the world He created, the amazing structure of our bodies and how they work, the fact that He could love someone who sins against Him over and over, the fact that He sent His son to die for those sins we commit, or whatever it may be - we need to think about those things more often.

What happens when we think about God's goodness on a regular basis is this; we lose the desire to commit sinful acts. When we have a true and grateful confidence that God is good, it will win the war against the wickedness that tempts us.

As you start and conclude your day today, let your first and last thoughts be a reflection on God's goodness. It's a perfect way to begin and end your day.

"The LORD is good, He is a stronghold in the day of trouble. And He knows those who trust Him." - Nahum 1:7

  1. You stated:

    Pretty good summary of how we need to live each day. As you said, it's difficult to think impure thoughts and act out wrongfully when
    we continually remind ourselves how good our Heavenly Father is.
    thank you,

  2. You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
