“I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!” – Psalm 27:13
While it may seem difficult to see the goodness that happens around us, there are always positive examples that allow us the possibility to see the work of the LORD. Even when there are negative news or examples that do not edify, there are always positive examples to be seen all around. This does not mean that happiness is the only thing to be achieved, but that even amidst all the obstacles, we can still see the positive.
Even in the midst of difficulties, there is the beauty of creation that exists. The mountains and the trees, the hills and valleys, and everything in between. From the rising of the sun to the way the stars shine, there is much goodness that exists. From the way individuals can help one another to the way that there may be individuals that do good with no ulterior motives, there is the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. For this we are to keep looking for the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
There is so much to be grateful for including the ability to experience the creation of the LORD and how the LORD provides. We are able to see goodness in the small details which allow us to praise and offer thanksgiving to the LORD of all creation.
