Look beyond what you see and see the good....
God's goodness is surrounding you.
Look beyond that circumstance and see the goodness of the Lord.
It may look like there is no hope but there is always hope.
Look beyond the negative and look for the good.
If you look for it you will find it.
I have a chronic illness, Crohn's, and I was told this year, it has flared up. I am currently receiving intravenous treatments. I have learned to look beyond this and see the good.
How can this be used for God to get the glory?
Well, sharing my story right now may help someone else. When I go for my treatments, God can use me to minister to someone. I have a new position at my place of employment that allows me time to receive my treatments. I no longer have to transport a child back and forth to school, so I can rest on my treatment days. As a nurse, I have had patients with Crohn's, who have been in a very different place. I remember when I was newly diagnosed and was hospitalized for 3 months, had multiple surgeries, and could barely function. Today, I can work, walk, eat, and perform my daily living activities!!
There are so many things I see in this process. It brings me joy, that God see me worthy enough and He trust me with this assignment. I see beyond this circumstance, knowing God will get the glory! It is not about me. I see Him in it. I see the good....
