Now You See It, Now You Don’t

I saw a cartoon by Mike Waters showing three children, 2 saying ‘Thank You’ and 1 saying ‘I don’t see anything to be thankful for.’  The disillusioned little fellow was looking at a plate on which was written ‘PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES.’  Whereas, the two joyous siblings were focused on a large filled plate being carried to the table on which was written ‘GOD’S GOODNESS, LOVE & MERCY.’

It is possible that you are feeling as that first little fellow.  Though we are entering into a wonderful time of the year celebrating ‘Thanksgiving,’ maybe all you see is an empty plate of ‘PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES.’

Let me encourage you that:

  • You are on God’s thoughts today!
  • He has your name written in the palm of His hand!
  • He will never forsake you!

When you turn your eyes away from those circumstances and toward Him and His Word, you will see an abundance of promise and provision God has prepared for you!

The title of the newsletter is ‘Now You See It, Now You Don’t’ for a powerful reason!  Let your focus be on God and His Word.  Come to Him today with THANKSGIVING.  When all you see are present circumstances, coming to God with thanksgiving will let those fade out of focus and bring God’s GREATNESS, POWER, MERCY, and LOVE into focus in your life!
