When the Negative Distracts Us from God
Recent times have been stressful and full of emotions, divisions, anger, and hatred all across the US. I have been brokenhearted to see it all play out. I am grieving the dissension among so many in this country, and I have shed tears over it. I have prayed and asked God to please help heal our land. I’ve asked Him to take it all in His hands, as if it’s not already.
I’ve been trying really hard to focus more on the positive than the negative. I’m choosing to try to only speak positivity and love instead of the opposite, no matter what my opinions and emotions tell me. You see, all this negativity and conflict fill my heart with anxiety, fear, and sadness. I cannot live like that.
As I began to focus on more positive thoughts, the load began to slowly lift off my heart. I was busy doing chores at home one evening and I looked out the front window and saw the most beautiful sunset. It was one of those sunsets you just had to stare at because of so many beautiful colors. I stepped out on my porch and took a quick photo. It immediately touched my heart and warmed it. My God was sending me a heavenly sign. It was as if He was saying, “I am here, child. I still love you. I will always be here. Trust in me and you will see what I have planned.”
I knew immediately that I needed to put a scripture with this photo. It was so beautiful and it just came naturally.
God’s Heavenly Signs
I really believe God sends us His heavenly signs of love in many different ways and always at the perfect time. This reminded me that not only is He always there, but I should praise Him all day, everyday, no matter what is going on around me! He needs to be the One I focus on and put my priority in. I immediately felt His love when I saw this and I wanted to share it. How could I forget to praise Him, when He is the one who has given us all things?
Dear Heavenly Father,
I praise your name! You are so great and so loving. I do not deserve the grace you show me, but I am so grateful that you extend it to me. Please forgive me for forgetting to praise you from the rising of the sun to its setting. May I always remember at every moment to bring you praise and honor through my actions, words and thoughts. Help me to block out the negativity and conflict that is always happening in the world. I love you and I thank you for your reminders that you are there.
It’s in Jesus’ name that I pray these things,
I encourage you to always look for ways God is speaking to you! How have you experienced God’s heavenly signs of love from above?
