Positive Words

 

(Proverbs 16:23-24) “A wise person’s thoughts control his words, and his speech promotes instruction. Pleasant words are honey from a honeycomb—sweet to the soul and healing for the body.”

(Hebrews 13:15) “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”

(Philippians 4:11-13) “I am not saying this because I am in any need, for I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am in. I know how to be humble, and I know how to prosper. In each and every situation I have learned the secret of being full and of going hungry, of having too much and of having too little. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

 

 

When you look at your glass, do you see it half empty or half full? It’s the same glass, with the same amount of water as everyone else, but why do some people always seem to find the brighter side to life? It’s very simple, they truly appreciate what they have and have maybe already experienced such hardship in life that simple things become valuable.

The food might not be great, but it will take away your hunger, the bed might be small but it’s better than the floor, your church might not grow but the individuals you have right now are growing on a personal level, or you may not have many possessions but this actually gives you the freedom to move if God asks you to do so.

If you truly sit down and understand what God has already done for you and all the blessings you really have, life becomes beautiful and truly pleasant. By focusing on God’s goodness toward you, people will be attracted to you as your words will be totally opposite to what they hear on TV or at other social gatherings. This trait of always being at peace and full of hope is clearly what separates the one that has Christ in His heart and the one that does not. Only the living God can bring the joy of life back to our hearts and show us how much He has blessed us.

No matter what you have in life, there is always someone who has more or less than you, who has suffered more than you and there will always be people that in your same situation enjoy life daily more than you.
It’s a simple matter of perspective and learning to be thankful to God no matter the abundance or lack in your current situation. Yes, things could always be better, but you have no idea how much worse they could be if God did not continually protect you, provide for you and love you.

Count your blessings, name them one by one. This is not just a song we sing in church, but it is something that if we actually sat down and did, we would run out of space on a single sheet of paper. By being openly positive and appreciative of whatever you have, you will infect others with this attitude and actually bring hope, healing, and peace to their lives as well. Make a choice today and stop being tossed around in your feelings and emotions by constant winds of change. Choose Christ and receive the joy that only He can give us.

 


Your heart might not always feel appreciative, but you control your mouth, and the fruits that come out if can either be bitter or sweet.
