  1. Sarah,

    Life down here is tough. There is so much sickness, divisiveness, hatred, etc. This world screams you can have it all & you deserve the best. More money, bigger house, etc. We tend to buy into that lie. We scurry around trying to achieve that & when we don’t/can’t we feel like life is hard. In the midst of our trying it seems almost impossible to see God’s goodness. It is there right there on display daily. Look at the beautiful mountains, snow falling, sunsets/sunrises. He shows His beauty & goodness daily. We miss the simplicity of His love & forget what He did for us. Time we slowed down & took a look at the sky & our surroundings. We will see His goodness in everything.

    Blessings 🙂 Merry Christmas

    • My goodness, Beth, you said it so well. It is so easy to get distracted, isn’t it? Glad for the gentle nudgings that he gives us to re-orient our gaze back to him. Merry Christmas to you, my friend!

  2. So often I forget the simple truth that not only can I make requests of God (we already have so much!), but He wants and directs me to! “Show me Your goodness today” will be on my lips frequently in the coming days. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I love that God spoke to your heart through a display of His beauty! I hear Him best and see His goodness most on a mountain trail. His goodness is here, indeed!

  4. Thank you, Sarah! I love the sky, and God’s given me a glorious sky when I’m feeling down, too. Thank you for that last word in your second-to-last paragraph: imaginations. I have an over-active imagination, and most of the time it feels inconvenient: it’s the reason I don’t get to bed until 1am or the reason I zone out in class. Sometimes it also produces scenarios that God has shown me aren’t good for me to be dwelling on, such as characters’ pain or fear. We’ve been working together on imagining healthy storylines, but something He’s been reminding me (and I forget over and over) is that He was the One to give me my imagination and that it’s a good thing when used correctly. This whole devotion has been so true and applicable to me, but I think God had you put in the word ‘imaginations’, because I almost started crying when I read it. God is always good, even when we can’t tell!
