How do you see today? How about this week or the rest of this month? The sad thing is that there are many people that will tell you that they don’t see it good at all. The problem with that is that today, this week, this month hasn’t happened yet! Today is only happening now, the week and month is in the future.

The question is this – Why do you see the negative or why do you see the positive? This is one of the most important questions in life that you need to know the answer to. Why? Because, the answer will determine how you see your future and how you see your future will determine your life right now! If you are seeing the negative, i.e. fear, anxiety, sadness, anger or hopelessness, it is affecting your life in an unhealthy way. You are not only breaking down your soul (emotions and will) but also your body. When you are looking at life through the eyes of fear, anxiety, sadness or even anger, medical science has proven that it is slowly tearing down your body. Literally, sickness and disease is getting a foothold in your life.

When you look at life with a positive outlook, it has been proven that it will increase your life span, strengthen your heart and your immune system, and lower depression rates and stress levels! Listen my friend, you must fight for the right to be well! I call this “living life” and not just “existing” in life. 

Let me help you understand the truth about a positive outlook. First of all, a positive outlook does not stop the bad from coming! What it does do is empower you to cope with those stressful times. Positive thinking does not mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore the ugly in front of you. No, having a positive outlook just means that you approach the ugly in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst. It’s time to take control of your life! It’s time to live life! Don’t give others empowerment over your life by what someone has said or done to you. Stand strong in life! Let me give you a few thoughts that can help you turn your life around.

First, you need to speak positively about yourself. You need to start encouraging yourself. Your self-talk must change from “I can’t” to “I can.” From “impossible” to “it’s possible.” From “it will never” to “it will”! Change the negative adjectives about yourself to positive ones. Remember, we are not talking about your past life (yesterday) but your life right now and in the future.

Second, get around people that are positive. If you cannot find any then make new friends! Negative people will hold you down, continue to doubt in life and increase your stress levels. Positive people will be supportive in your life and even help you succeed in life.

Third, make sure to evaluate yourself periodically. Don’t assume that just because you made a decision to change that it will happen automatically for you. It’s going to take time and you need to make sure you’re not holding on to negative thoughts. When you recall those negative thoughts, tell them that it’s time to go and then speak positively over whatever the situation was.

Fourth, please trust God to help you! He loves you so much and desires for your life to be better. This is why He sent Jesus. Jesus says in John 10:10, The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy (isn’t this the same as a negative outlook on life?). I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Jesus declared that He desires for us to have a great, blessed life! This is exactly what a positive outlook in life will do for you.

This has impacted my life! I sure hope you got hold of this as well. This is your new life and I am expecting it to be so much better for you! I would also like to ask you something. Have you received Jesus into your life? If you haven’t, you can. Just speak to Him right now. Tell Jesus that you believe in Him and that you want Him to come into your life so that you can be a part of His family. Go ahead and ask Him now. Once you have done that, the Bible says that he has come into your life! Now, thank God for sending Jesus just for you!

If you would like, I could send you a little pamphlet that can help you in your new life. Just email me with your address at office@lovelifechurch.com and I will send it to you. Don’t worry! You won’t start getting a bunch of letters begging for money. I will just send you the gift! Love you all and have a tremendous Life!
