A couple of years ago, I was watching American Idol with my daughter. (Don’t judge me!) There was a lady who didn’t win, who just kept crying through every single interview!
Ashtyn finally said, “Man, she’s bringing me DOWN!” I was glad she spoke up because I was feeling the same thing!
We have to pay close attention to our surroundings, or else, we’ll allow those people to pull us down into their NEGATIVE state of mind.
Be careful, little ears, what you hear!
Everyone has an occasional bad day. But, don’t allow your life to become an emotional roller coaster, with its random HIGHS and desperately low LOWS!
We’re not supposed to think like the rest of the world. We program ourselves with God’s Word to have hope and keep us focused on POSITIVE thoughts.
“…whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely…” Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
Think on these things!
And… when things DO go wrong, (believe me, they will) we look to God with anticipation to see how He is going to turn the situation around for our good.
Negative thinking will keep you from enjoying your life. Get around some fun, happy, positive-minded Christians and just ENJOY THE RIDE!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
