Looking for Good

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.
But the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.
--Winston Churchill
He who diligently seeks good seeks favor...
Proverbs 11:27
Finally, brethren,
whatever is true,
whatever is honorable,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is of good repute,
if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise,
dwell on these things.
Philippians 4:8
But examine everything carefully;
hold fast to that which is good;
1 Thessalonians 5:21
I again ask for forgiveness for looking for
and dwelling on the negative
in situations and in people
rather than all the GOOD
that you have blessed me with
and the good that you have placed in others.
I thank you for your goodness to me!
I thank you for friends who love me and accept me - shortcomings and all!
I thank you for the people you have placed in my life who challenge me to new levels in you.
I thank you for my family.
And I even thank you for the struggles.
For I know that you have taught me many valuable lessons
as I have walked through them.
And I thank you for your perfect love!
A love so deep and true I cannot comprehend it!
You are GOOD!
And I declare my commitment to looking for the GOOD.
