Hello, all! Here I am writing another post, trying to squeeze it in before school starts again! School is actually a topic that I will be discussing today. Now as you get to know me, you’ll find out that I do love learning and education, truly, honestly! But I will also tell you that I dread the thought of school, as most do. School actually can make me a pretty negative person at times, and as you probably already know, that is totally unlike me! Negativity is a pretty funny thing. It pops up out of the blue and suddenly takes its hold on you, without you even realizing it.
However, there is always a solution! God has your solution written out for you in the Good Book! There are two verses that I know of relating to this topic, but honestly I am sure that there are so many more!
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable– if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
“Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. Luke 10:19
You have the power to think positive thoughts. Crush your serpents and replace them with noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy thoughts and actions. Not only will thinking such things make you happy and sunny, but you can help to improve the moods and thoughts of others around you. God only wants us to be happy, but in order to be happy, we need to take the extra step, go the distance. Is it easier to be negative? Yes. But, are you a person that God would be proud of when you are negative? Does your unfavorable behavior allow for you to carry out your duties gladly? Are you proud of yourself when your project your mood on others? Think through these questions when you feel yourself sliding down the slope. Then, pick yourself back up, try again, and overcome the mountain!
I will be praying for you! I know that it is hard, but nothing is impossible with God! And, remember! It is a New Year, so lets work on improving ourselves and our relationship with God! Best wishes and God Bless!
