In an effort to be more positive we can actually end up being more stressed and negative, because life can be difficult at times and its quite simply hard to be positive all the time.
Life has its positives and negatives, it’s good and it’s bad. The key to staying on an even keel and to actually being more positive is to learn to weigh things up and to actively look for the good. (We usually don’t need to search for the negatives because most people are prone to focus on them first.)
To learn to weigh up the good against the bad and the positive against any negative aspect of our lives. There will always be slivers of beauty; little blessings and goodness in our day. If we look, we will find them. God says, “He works all things together for our good, and gives us all we need. His goodness and mercy, when we seek him will chase us down. (Roman’s 8:28; 2 Peter 1:3; Psalm 23:6)
Today I encourage you to weigh it up and look to balance your lives circumstances out. There will be good in amongst the bad. Positives even in amongst the negatives. An ability to make lemonade when life deals us lemons. Hang in there, look for the beauty and ask God to reveal, and if need be to send some extra goodness your way today.
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly”. (Psalm 84:11)
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” ( Roman’s 22:21)
Prayer: Lord thankyou that where sin and negatives seem to abound, your grace abounds far more. Please help me to weigh up my circumstances and to look for the good today. In Jesus name Amen
