Feel Good Friday #75
Every week Doubting Believer brings you things to read, watch or listen to that are sure to make you smile. Because we all could use a little good news.
Welcome to the longest uninterrupted spiritual discipline I’ve ever maintained. Seventy-five straight weeks of seeking out good news to share. One of the best things I’ve done. Because as good as the news of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ is, we still need glimpses of the kingdom as we make our way through this life. Stories of people being awesome, as well antics and entertainment that make us smile, are ways we are reminded of the world as it should (and one day will) be.
It often feels like we can’t make a dent in the problems of our world. Fortunately eight-year-old Tyler Stallings was too young to realize that when, at the age of four, he started raising money and collecting supplies for veterans. So far, he’s raised over $50,000. Be like Tyler. Believe that you can make a difference, and then do it. Some super heroes DO wear capes.
If this commercial doesn’t give you all the feels, you might want to check your pulse.
Sesame Street has been teaching us to be nice for 50 years. Big Bird, Bert, Ernie and the rest of the gang are getting ready to receive well-deserved Kennedy honors.
Toss out your weekend plans because The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Season Three is out on Amazon Prime today.
Get some rest, do something fun, connect with people in real life and spend some time with God this weekend. Make renewal a priority so that you are able to be the person God calls you to be. Take care of yourself. The world needs you.
