Genesis 45:7-8
“But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.” 
Joseph had suffered terrible things at the hands of his brothers, and as a result of their actions. Even so, he chose to recognize the fingerprints of God in his situation instead of just focusing on the injustices he had suffered. 
Sometimes I’ll be treated well in life, sometimes poorly. If I choose to merely focus on the negatives, then that is all that I will see. But whether I take the time to recognize it or not, God IS working in my situation, accomplishing His will in me.
This week, I need to take the time to look for the fingerprints of God. Not just in the pleasant and fun circumstances, but also in the struggle, the heartbreak, and the battles. 
God, thank you for not only being with me, but also for actively working in my life through every circumstance and every season. Help me to take the time to recognize your fingerprints in each situation, and maintain an attitude of gratefulness in my life.
