Will you do something with me today? By the end of the evening last night, I decided to head to bed because I had been inundated with negative news all day. I was able to clear my head before sleeping and this morning I woke up to a great day. Slowly, as the day started to unfold, negative news began to abound.
I started getting grouchy. I heard another piece of news that was negative and thought,
I’m sorry. I can’t fix it. I can’t fix everyone’s problems all the time and someone is always unhappy about something.
Needless to say, that was the wrong response, and I walked away asking myself, What is wrong with me?
I realized that I was letting the influx of negativity affect me in the wrong way.
But sometimes, we just need a balance. We need to hear positive, encouraging news. It lifts us up.
Maybe there’s a reason the Bible says to talk about His wondrous works.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! Psalm 105:1-2 NKJ
I want to hear good news! Will you leave a positive comment? I want to hear if your sister-in-law just received Jesus, if your doctor gave you a good report, or if your dog just came home! 😉
I’ll start by leaving a comment about some good news. Your comments will benefit others who may be discouraged, and need to hear some encouragement.
If you can’t think of anything good, find the good in that situation!
