It’s important to think about what we’re thinking about.
It’s beneficial to pay attention to what we’re paying attention to.
So often we will find that we see what we seek.
That’s why it made me smile to see a splash of green on the oh-so-very-gray morning this morning. Once I saw the green of Spring, the gray almost complemented it and wasn’t so bad…even on an oh-so-very-gray morning in our nation. I’m thankful in the midst of struggle, there’s most often a splash of beauty to be seen, even it it’s just a spot glanced at from the corner of your eye. Once you see the green, it’s not all gray.
So, here’s a cool verse along those lines:
“Finally, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.“
So, I’m going to try to remember to think. To think on things that are true and good…and to see what I seek. And to pay attention to what I’m paying attention to. Because the world looks pretty foggy right about now….foggy with uncertainty and fear and sadness.
When things are foggy, it’s really important to stay focused. It’s important to focus on what’s right here, right now, and not try to peer into the foggy future of uncertainty. No matter how much we peer, we can’t see what’s ahead on those foggy days. Thankful for God’s Word that can be a lamp unto our feet, a little light that helps us see things we didn’t see before. Even a little thing like a splash of Spring green on a foggy day can encourage a heart that wants to be encouraged.

“So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn. And He will come, He will come to us like the rain, like the Spring rain, watering the earth.”
“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
