Then I read Psalm 145. Man, what an incredible change of focus, from the world as it is to the goodness and greatness of God. He is the real good news. I thought about posting the entire Psalm, but you should just go read it for yourselves. Wow, is all I can say. We have a choice as far as focus goes. Without God, how does anyone handle the bad stuff?
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
