Devotion: November 12
It matters how you see your life. Do you see your life with a positive perspective? Or do you view your life from a negative perspective? You can either see it in shades of disappointments and failure or you can see it in hues of opportunities and blessings. You can choose the lens through which you see your life. The lens of gratitude helps you see all the many blessings you have in your life, while with the lens of disappointment only sees what you missed in life. In Psalm 103 the Psalmist chose to see life through the lens of blessings when he declared to himself, “O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing!” You can make the choice today to see your life through the lens of blessings. Stop looking only for the negative in your life and begin to look for all the blessings.
