Everywhere we turn we see and experience much negativity in today’s world, don’t we? Well today we are pausing for a moment to discuss how you and I can stay positive and how each of us can be a positive person, filled with joy and hope in a negative world. Can we? I think we can and I believe we are called to be.
Why do you think there’s so much negativity in the world today? Is it because that’s just the way it is? Or because of the government or because of the people in charge? Or does it have to do with our own personal choices and attitudes?
We take a glance back to the early chapters of Genesis to find an answer that may explain it all.
Could this be where negativity began?
But just because there’s so much negativity in the world, doesn’t mean we can’t live positive lives. I believe you and I can remain positive people in spite of the way of the world today.
Even if it’s not what anyone else is doing. Even if you or I may be the only positive person in a sea of negativity. We look at a couple scriptures in Philippians and Matthew to encourage our hearts and find an example to follow.
Being a positive person is much more than just being a happy person. It goes much deeper than that.
So, what steps are you taking to be a positive person in a negative world?
I share a few things my husband and I have done and are doing to remain positive, including what we watch, what’s in my social feeds, who we hang with, and what we take in on a daily basis. With a few stories and promptings, I pray you are inspired and encouraged to make any adjustments you are being called to make to stay a positive person… the amazing positive person you already are.
Are you the most positive person you know?
The world needs you to be. Maybe now more than ever.
