For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (Ephesian 5:8 KJV)
A positive attitude always propels you to your destiny!
I turned on the television last night and took a glimpse for a while at Cartoon Network. Johnny Bravo brought an instant smile to my face. As he was walking down the road, he was singing, "If you're gorgeous and you know it say I AM." He kept singing and singing and singing as he went on his journey doing his usual duty of trying to get a lady.
Even though he was turned down by every single one of them, at the end of the cartoon, still POSITIVE, he said, "Maaaan - Am I Beautiful." Then the screens closed.
We should always endeavour to remain positive, optimistic and hopeful despite our individual circumstances. Doing contrary does us NO GOOD at all. It simply fills us with fear and stress.
As the Apostle Paul wrote to the people at Ephesus, he reminded them of the change that had now come upon them since they made Christ their choice. He says, you are no longer in the darkness. That means you are no longer bound by sin, depression, hurt. You are a new person, you are a person of LIGHT, thus walk in this NEWNESS. This Light would cause you to look unto Jesus from whence cometh your help. This light would cause you to know that God is well able to take care of your situation and you need not worry.
This light would cause you to Stay Positive - Stay Optimistic - Stay Hopeful even when everything around you seems dark and gloomy.
We all have our flaws. We all have made some serious mistakes. We all have done things we regret at times. Society has taken on the job to pull down and remind, but God has taken on the job to grant mercy, forgive and forget.
Through out this week, like Johnny Bravo - Keep on Singing - God's eyes are right on you. He knows your name. Things will soon work out!
