The Power To Choose!

Everyone has a choice to make. We can choose to be negative or positive. Life gives us plenty of opportunities to decide for ourselves in which direction we are going to allow things to flow. And by the way, to not choose is to choose…

The problem with negativity is that it is like a poison which polutes everything it touches. And once we allow negative thoughts to enter our mind, it makes the work of getting to normal that much more difficult. Negativity plunges us into a darkness, which allows us to be overcome by fear. We tend to get caught up in the pettiness that manifests itself in judgemental attitudes, anxious thoughts and a distracted engagement with the blame game.

Positivity is the choice that restores and rebuilds our mind to the place it was created to be. And when we choose positive over negative, it frees us up to receive, claim and enjoy the blessings we were created for. Positivity empowers us physically, mentally and spiritually, so we might choose love over fear as the light illuminates and chases away the darkness, which opens our life and living for the miraculous.

”Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” -Philippians 4:8-9

Choose positive over negative, so that your mind will stay alive and healthy. Take on and take out any negative vibes and replace them with positive vibes. Do not be careless, lazy or impartial when it comes to your mind, thoughts and spirit. God created your mind to be a creative force for love and a birth place for peace. Guard it, protect it and grow it for God’s glory and everyone’s blessing.

Seven Steps From Negative To Positive!​

On a good day, life is hard and on bad day, life just seems impossible. We’ve all been at that place where it seems like no matter how hard we try to stay on the positive side of life, the negative just keeps crashing in on us and all we can think about is giving up.

I totally understand, because it’s a battle I’ve fought since the very moment of my birth into this human experience. I am generally a pretty positive person and through the years, I have developed the skills that encourage me toward positivity over negativity. So it’s extra crazy to me how I can so quickly and easily he painted into a corner of defeat.

I have found that there are a few small things that can make a big difference in building up positivity in my life, so that I can take on and take out the negativity. When I feel the negative growing, I use these things as a check list to help bring me into alignment with the positive side of life. Several things on this list are actually a part of my daily routine, which contributes in a very big way in helping me to be an encouragement to others

Seven Steps From Negative To Positive!

1. Scriptures! The Bible is full of promises and encouragement. Take some time to discover and write down some of these that you own as your own. Read it and meditate on it. Speak it out loud and let it be real. Believe it and watch the miraculous happen in your life…

2. Journaling! Pen and paper are a very important part of being healthy. There is something almost magical that happens when we allow our thoughts to flow from our mind, through the pen and onto the paper. Just the act itself works wonders!!!

3. Music! Music jas always been a powerful force and it can lift you up or bring you down. It can excite you or give you peace. Make sure that you are listening to what is helping you. Learn to recognize your emotions and allow them to dictate your musical diet.

4. Quotes! With the internet and social media, we have access to all kinds of encouragement from words and pictures. You can print them out to post in key locations, use them as screen savers on electronic devices and memorize them to speak encouragement to yourself and others.

5. Diet & Exercise! Food and drink have an impact on how we feel. A good meal can do wonders for making you feel better. Pay attention to how food and drink impacts you and contributes to your well being. Exercise does not have to be complicated at all. It is amazing what a difference some simple stretching and a good walk can do for you both mentally and physically.

6. Self Care! We all have basic needs and being aware of those needs and making effort to make sure our needs are met is a very important part of living a healthy and positive life. Think of the three major areas of your life: Physical, Mental and Spiritual – figure out your basic needs in these areas and make sure those needs are being met. You matter and if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of anyone else.

7. Service! One of the quickest ways I have discovered that I can move myself from negative to positive is by doing something to make life better for someone else. Look for ways to be a blessing to others and you will be pleasantly surprised at how this simple a t opens up your own life to blessing…

Powerful Emotions!

img000057Emotions are powerful things!  I am going to tell you something you know, but seldom really think about:  You can control your emotions or your emotions will control you.  Some of the emotions that we experience in life are negative and they seek to dominate and control us.  Fear, anger, frustration, lust and discouragement will turn you into a slave, if you are not careful.  These negative emotions eat at us, steal our joy and rob us of our peace.  Negative emotions are like a cancer, they seek to destroy everything they can.

God wants you to have positive emotions such as love, joy and peace!  Jesus Christ came and died on the cross, so that you could have love, joy and peace!  The Holy Spirit is active and alive right now, so that you can have love, joy and peace!  Don’t let the devil and the negative emotions of this life keep you from having, experiencing and living in all of the amazing power that God has for you.

You will have challenges and you will face hard and difficult times, but stay positive, trust God and you will discover that your courage and confidence in Him, will empower you to think, feel, act and experience victory – no matter what the circumstances!  Emotions do not have to be a bad thing.  We just have to learn how to use our emotions, rather than have them use us.

Here are a few things that you can do today to deal with your emotions:  1.)  Take some time to pray!  Just talk to God and tell Him what is going on in your life and how you feel.  He will not be surprised or caught off guard.  2.)  Make some time to listen!  Open your heart and mind and listen for what the Spirit of God is saying to you.  (The Bible is always a good resource in listening!)  3.)  Refocus your life!  Take what you have said to God and what God has said to you and get your life into alignment with Him!

God is who He says He is and you can trust in Him!
