Day 205 –
Let’s Focus on the Good!
“How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7.
Alright, let’s face it, we all know a “Debbie Downer” or 2. And no matter how pretty they are, their attitude brings their outer beauty down a few notches.
These days many people are focused on the negative world, and to be frank, negativity breeds negativity. And I’m done with negative talk.
But what’s also true is Joy breeds Joy, and Joy is found in the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Those with joy are the ones that you can’t take your eyes off of, that you are trying to find the bad in them, but they are always looking towards the good….so what makes them so different? They not only know Jesus, they not only believe, but they are walking by Faith with beautiful feet!
Their faith will scale the mountains. These individuals trust in and love Jesus so much that it breeds Joy all around them.
Does bad happen to them? Absolutely, Yes! But God is in control of it all, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and they choose to focus only on the Good.
It is my desire to travel to the mountains and live life with those whose walk is filled with the good news. I’m truly blessed to be able to call many Joy-filled women my Friends. They speak truth to me and make me laugh, they bring Joy and Happiness to me in the good and the bad, and they can speak of the Good News with me without ever being awkward or afraid.
Friends like these encourage me, surround me, and love me well. To me, my friends are more beautiful on the outside because of the beauty they exudes from their inside when they share Christ’s Love.
I can affirmatively say today, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news, peace, happiness, and salvation on the mountain.” Because those feet belong to my friends.
Don’t you want beautiful feet as well? Join me; Choose to speak of the Good News of Jesus Christ without any shame.
Now that is True Beauty on the Mountain!
