Look the Right Way

Description

When you look the right way—toward what is true, noble, and lovely—you are encouraged and strengthened.

Look the right way! In the world around you, there are vistas of bright beauty as well as dark, ugly wastelands. When you look the right way—toward what is true, noble, lovely—you are encouraged and strengthened. I created you with a great capacity to enjoy beauty and goodness.

Your soul resonates with these blessings, drawing strength from them.

As you go through this day, you will encounter things that make you cringe, things that are wrong or ugly. Deal with these as you must, but do not let them become your focus. Remember that I am with you, and listen to Me. Hear Me saying time after time, “Look the right way.”

There is beauty not only in the visible world but also in what is unseen. This world in its fallen condition can never satisfy you fully. You yearn for perfection, and I am the fulfillment of that deep longing. I am perfect in every way, yet I am able to stay close to you as you walk through this sin-stained world. So look the right way—toward blessings, toward Me—and the Joy of My Presence will shine upon you.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. —Philippians 4:8 NKJV

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” —John 10:27

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. —Numbers 6:25 NKJV

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. —Psalm 16:11 ESV
