A positive mind strengthens itself . A negative mind strengthens its barriers. unknown author
I came across the above quote this morning on the internet and it started me thinking about the two choices we have of the roads we choose to travel; the road of negativity or positivity. Which one do you choose?
It is so easy sometimes to choose the negative road. We start out our day by saying ” Well it will probably be just another bad day! Nothing ever goes right in my life!” I know of a few people who begin each day of their lives with this self-defeating prophesy. I’ve done it myself as well from time to time. At the end of the day we can often see that we were right — it was a bad day! Why? Because we decided it would be before the day ever began. I dislike it when I take that attitude and definitely prefer not to be around others who do as well.
Our other option is to start out our day on a positive basis. Include the Lord in our life every day. Psalms 118:24 – This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. A great verse to remember each day. Does it mean that our day will be perfect? that nothing will go wrong and we will get all we wish for? No, life is not perfect and we don’t get everything we want, but do we increase our chances of a better day? Can we feel a lot better at the end of the day about even those things that don’t turn out quite the way we want them to? Yes, I believe that. Certainly, if we start out our day trusting in God and knowing He is in control at all times, our chances of a positive day are increased in great measure!
We should try to remind ourselves daily that as he says in Matthew 19:26, ‘with God all things are possible’. I wish you a wonderfully positive day, every day! May you always view your glass as being half full or more, not half empty or less.
Have a great day!
