Guess who’s back!!!
So on July 5, 2016, The Daily Dose went on hiatus. I needed to finish my doctoral project and figured that in 3, maybe 4 months I’d be back up and running again. Well, one thing led to another and three months turned into a little over two years. A lot can happen in two years. I did finish my doctoral project and graduate. I also had a son and am now a proud dad.
As you can see, a lot can happen in two years. So here we are and back at it again. I missed writing the Dose and all of you. So as of now we are back up and running. Welcome back to the Daily Dose!
A Word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Monday, February 11, 2019.
If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you. Proverbs 11:27
What are you looking for?
It amazed me when I got my new car how many other people had cars like it. Wherever I drove, I saw other people with the same make and model of car. It was like they were following me around. At the gym, they were there. At the grocery store, they were there too. When I was stuck in traffic on the beltway, there’s another one right there as well. I was amazed. Then I realized that I hadn’t changed any of my habits and these people were certainly not stalking me, I was just noticing something that had always been there that I had not seen.
You see, buying a new car made me see all of the cars like mine that were around me. Because I had one, I started looking for and seeing the ones that were around me. That is how most things work in life. What you look for you will find. If you look for the good in a situation, you will find it. If you look for a way to have joy in a circumstance, you will find it. By contrast, if you always look for the bad around you, you will find that too. If you are always looking for something to complain about, you will find that as well. The real question you have to answer is not what are you finding but rather, what are you looking for.
Today, take the time to look for the good in your life. When you make the conscious decision to look for God, and look for good, you will both in all your situations. In all things, God is there and there is some good there. Not only that, but you will find that the whole time there has been goodness, joy, and blessing all around you. Then you will begin to see it everywhere. You will see it in the people you meet, the places you go and eventually you will see it in yourself too. So today, take a good look around not for what’s wrong but for everything that is right. You’ll be amazed at what is right there around you.
