I declare in the name of Jesus I will lift my hands to Heaven and worship Him in the midst of the madness. I will speak of His goodness and wonders manifested through my life. I am a witness of His goodness to a dying world. 


I think a lot of God’s goodness skips off us the way a meteor deflects off our atmosphere. We go on to the next thing without any kind of dedication to contemplation or meditation. It’s business as usual.

Instead of thinking God thoughts, we worry and swat at anxiety with all our mental muscle. Worry, however, is a trap. Worry is about the future. As God is eternal, He is already in the future, so there’s no need to worry. It just becomes another distraction from the goodness that passes before us throughout our day.

In my experience, the gravity pull of our broken hearts will bring God’s goodness screaming into our day, lighting up our sky and illuminating the darkness we find ourselves in. When that happens, the impact is thunderous and completely alters the geography of our lives.

This is called transformation, and transformation begins with goodness. If we want to move to higher levels of encounter with Jesus, we must learn to recognize God’s goodness, no matter how small or brief, throughout our day.  

Be a magnet for good! Look for it. Demonstrate it. Sing of it and pass it along!

I call to remembrance my song in the night; I meditate within my heart, And my spirit makes diligent search. – Psalm 77:6
