How encouraging and comforting it would be if more people had this rare view of us?Quote

Sharon, this is another reason I very much value Jehovah's view because you and I and likely many others feel we fail so often but yet Jehovah sees in our failure the good that we wanted to do. For example, let's say that we go to "make peace" with someone, but the discussion becomes an argument and we feel worse because we failed to make peace. Yet Jehovah has this rare view,
"I see good in Sharon, she decided to make peace because she knows how important that it is to me, she even took the initiative to speak to the other person even though it was hard for her, so she is a "peacemaker" like me and I am proud of her for that. So even though her attempt for peace didn't work this time, I saw the good she wanted to do and I saw the good that she did".
So Sharon viewed her attempt at peace as a failure, but Jehovah saw good in the attempt and saw good in what Sharon wanted to do
This was me today ...............I had the ministry planned, got out of bed and felt like a truck hit me. I had to just ask Jehovah to help me just get out the door and to the group. What a struggle but with his help I made it. I didn't set the world on fire but I was out and actually had a little extra energy after the ministry to accomplish a few necessary tasks. Thanks for the reminder Neil that Jehovah sees the good we would like to do. This is our CA weekend so I thought I would give the free day ( no meeting) to Jehovah. NO matter how hard this old system is on us there is still no better life.
