if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things. PHILIPPIANS 4:8
General Robbie Risner described the seven years he spent as a prisoner of war as ‘the essence of despair.’ What’s amazing is how he survived. He prised the cover off a floor drain in his cell and lowered his head into the opening. There he noticed a solitary blade of grass, the only smidgeon of colour in his colourless world. Calling it a blood transfusion for the soul, Risner began each day in prayer, lying on the floor of his cell with his head down the vent, focused on that single blade of grass. Jesus said, ‘”Your eye…provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness…”‘ (Matthew 6:22-23 NLT).What are you looking at? Each day you get to decide where you’ll focus. Humans tend to find things to complain about. God gave Adam and Eve everything they needed in the Garden of Eden, but they chose to focus on the one thing they couldn’t have. He divided the Red Sea and provided food so the Israelites would never go hungry. Initially, ‘They… sang his praise. But…soon forgot what he had done…’ (Psalm 106:12-13 NIV). Don’t be like that. The Bible says, ‘If there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.’ Surely you can find something to praise God for today!
