When its hard to see the good…

When you are a cynic like I am, it can be difficult to see the good in most things.  I am naturally suspicious of people, places, things, and institutions.  I see brokenness everywhere I look. However, I believe as a new creature in Christ, I need to have a  more optimistic outlook on all areas as Jesus is not only in the business of redeeming me.  He is in the business of redeeming all things.  I need to be less cynical and more hopeful especially when it comes to the church.  I spent enough time in the church to see a lot more brokenness than I would have ever believed possible, but the church is the bride of Christ and despite its flaws Jesus loves it unconditionally as a bridegroom loves his bride.

When I have a tough time remembering that good things do exist even in the church, I find that this clip from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers helps me to refocus:

Hope this gives some hope to the cynics out there.
