Do you feel like negativity is making things harder for you? Sometimes we get stuck in a negative cycle and can’t get out.
Instead of listening to bad news all the time, listen to the Good News instead. You will find an uplifting message in God’s Word. This isn’t a sugar coated, false message of denial. Instead, the Word of God speaks truth, and the greatest truth of all is God’s love for you.
Focus on your primary roles. These are so important now. Glorify God even in the smallest tasks and gestures. Know that every action made to help or heal is worth it. The angels in heaven sing for this with great joy.
So instead of being negative, you can be hopeful and strong. You can rise above the noise and live life with purpose and meaning. The Spirit will help you if you ask. Nothing can be more positive than being in God’s presence. So go there and be transformed. Then, go and help others hear the Good News too.
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:
. . .
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
PRAYER TO LEAVE NEGATIVITY BEHIND
O merciful Lord,
This troubled world wants to tie me up in knots. So much anger and pain make me feel negative and all alone.
May your Spirit show me once again, O Lord, I am not alone. My God is the living God. My Lord is Christ Jesus. His pure love sets me free.
In the name of Jesus, cast out the lies of evil one. Return my focus to where I find purpose and joy.
You are my salvation and there is no greater hope than my soul at rest in God. Even during dark, tough times, you are with me & I am yours. You give me great courage. I walk with a light, sure step.
I see now with the eyes of Christ my heavenly destiny, in the loving arms of my Father. Your goodness overwhelms me. I am free. I am home.
In Jesus name,
