Quit Being Negative!


I have such a long history of negativity. I am simply prone to it. And while I used to excuse it by figuring I deserved to be negative because of all the challenges in my life and because of all the yucky-ness in this world, I now know better. There is never an excuse for negativity. It is sin against God.

God created us to be people of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ filled with love, hope, peace, joy, and rejoicing who live for Jesus, who enjoy an intimate relationship with Jesus, and who bring love, thanksgiving, praise, honor, worship, and glory to God.

I still fall into negativity at times, but usually it is short-lived. The Holy Spirit of God shows me my wrong heart, words, and behavior and leads me to repentance. And I strive now to be positive and to love, thank, praise, bless, worship, and glorify the Lord on an ongoing basis.

The key to all this I believe is to change our focus from the yucky stuff in life to focus on Jesus and the Bible and all God’s endless blessings instead.

If you find yourself being negative, please quit being negative! Turn your focus to Jesus, love Him, live for Him, enjoy Him, and rejoice and praise, bless, thank, worship, and glorify the Lord! Amen!
