Focusing on the negative is getting me nowhere, it’s not helping me get anywhere in life, and it’s not helping me on my walk with the Lord. So I will choose to focus on the positive things, the things to shout praises for. But at the same time I will praise Him through the yucky things as well, because He is sovereign and magnificent and He knows why all this stuff is happening.
There will always be stuff. Cars breaking down, financial struggles, medical problems….life happens. And it is going to be a very lonely rough road if I choose to stay focused on the negative through it all. He will provide. He will protect. He will guide.
May my shouts of praise be louder than my pitiful cries.
