Be positive. Those are two words I hear quite frequently from my husband. Probably more like ninety-five percent of the time.
I admit I struggle with being positive. I tend to be more negative where as my husband is the positive one. People we know may not know this about us, but it’s true. He’s the positive one in our marriage and I tend to be the negative one.
I don’t like being negative. In fact I have to work at being positive. Doesn’t matter what the situation is either. If there is a doctor appointment my husband reminds me to be positive. If I have to deal with a bad situation he tells me to be positive.
I have to purpose in my heart to be positive like Daniel did in Daniel 1:8. I wonder if it was easy for Daniel to be positive?
I do find on the days I purpose in my heart to be positive I have great days. I’m able to smile. To stay focused. To be happy. To get more things done around my house and my family tends to be happy as well.
For me being positive is a constant struggle. I don’t know why, but it is. I do like the days where I am able to beat the negativity, put a smile on my face and stay positive.
This is something I need God’s help with. And I ask him for it all the time. I’m guessing I’m not the only person who struggles with this. Maybe we can all purpose in our hearts to pray for each other. To ask God to help us to have more positive days and to trust in Him.
