Proverbs 23:7
August 12, 2021

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Proverbs 23:7

When you focus excessively on the negative elements of a certain situation and overlook the good aspects, you are "filtering out" the positive and exaggerating the negative. Very few situations are 100 percent negative; most of the time, you can find something good in every circumstance, even if you have to be really diligent about it. When you are constantly focusing on the negative, you'll find it very difficult to trust that things will get better. But when you choose to find the positive things in even your worst challenges, you'll never run our of hope or the ability to put your trust in God. What is the most negative situation in your life? List three positive things about it or other aspects of your life. When you do, you'll find a fresh source of hope and a new ability to trust.
