There are so many things happening all around us. Every day there's a new tragedy in the media, something is happening in our personal lives, and at some point, these two conflicts will collide with one another. Oh, the stress it causes! It can make it hard for us to enjoy life and if we're not careful we can view our life through a lens of bitterness & tragedy. We'll miss out on all of the good things that happened, we'll bury the good memories in our subconscious & more importantly we'll miss what God has done! At least that was the case for the Children of Israel, they stayed in the wilderness for 40 years because they never considered all that God had done and if we aren't careful we could end up like them!
1 Samuel 12:24 ESV ; Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.
