Has it ever occurred to you that the way we try to motivate or encourage another person may (sometimes) actually be negative? Or attracting negativity into our lives? What am I saying? Think about it, sometimes when we approach someone to discuss an issue, we think we are being positive, but if we look at our conversation we may find we are actually speaking more negative words than positive ones. A lot of the time we concentrate on the negative, what that person is doing wrong. So if we are discussing the negative to get them to be positive…… what are the chances we will all get bogged down in the negativity?
What I am trying to say is this……
I want YOU to know that no matter what is happening in your life YOU have the strength to get through it! Not only will you get through it, you will come out stronger for having gone through it! I have heard it said you have to breakdown to breakthrough. Maybe we should consider whatever challenges we are facing moments of growth!
Don’t give up. Don’t fill your day with worry (Phil 4:6 comes to mind) make room in your thoughts for a “knowing” that you are stronger than you think and will be OK! Feel strengthened today! And feel supported. I’m sending you prayers that you will realize your strength and that you will SHINE on!
See what I did there? I just stopped and encouraged. No negativity…..challenges; yes, we all have them! But our lives are filled with challenges and always will be. We are strong! We are capable!
