Positive or Negative?


Proverbs 15: 13 and 15 (NKJV)

13 A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,
But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

 

15 All the days of the afflicted are evil,
But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.

I know, I know…  We get hit with negativity almost everyday, but that’s how satan breaks us down.  Very few people try to see the positive in things, like for example, work, companies keep on introducing new things in order to cut costs and produce products quicker, in order to save money and meet the needs of the customer/consumer.  And then employees would see only the negative and complain about new software they need to learn and working a bit of overtime in the beginning of the changes…  But have they ever thought of the positive things? Like the company tries alternative things to save money as to retrenching their employees, or the overtime shows that they have a company that needs people to work overtime because they are too busy…  and the fact that you can work overtime means you have a JOB, which is scarce these days…
Another example, you plan on spending the weekend camping, but a big storm comes up, and you can’t go because it keeps on raining throughout the weekend. Did you ever think that someone depend on that rain to survive?

I’m sure you can think of other examples that occur in your life…

Try and think more positive from tomorrow.  Start expecting positive things to happen in your life.  This is how we practice our faith in God.  If you have a negative energy around you, everything will end up being negative.  The bible tells us about these things.  Proverbs 13:20 (NKJV) :

20 He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will be destroyed.

 

This is a good example that tells us that we should surround us with good things/people to be good ourselves and not with evil things.

So when something comes up, don’t expect negativity, CLAIM positivity, and the negative things will start fading away…

 

Have a blessed evening.

    i hope more people jump on the bandwagon. i have been practicing this myself lately. the Bible says to do all things without complaining, and we are the worst at it, without realizing how blessed we are.

      i’ve been practicing only saying only positive things for a few weeks now, and i realize i don’t say as much:) so i have to work on that! i have noticed that when someone starts a conversation on a negative tone, i will try to get them to see the positive in the situation and they see it from a new perspective so i’m still working on it. tired of being a debbie downer

      Amen, I’m glad your taking the step. Soon you will change other people’s attitude around you as well.

      Have a great evening.
