If you look for the bad/negative – you will find it.
If you start looking for God’s goodness – you will start seeing his hand and fingerprints on every aspect of your life.Pastor David Possinger
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers[a] in harmony with God’s own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[b] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:27-28 (NLT)
