How To Stay Upbeat Positive & Encouaged

Posted by James Kevin Johnson on

In living in a world where it seems as if there's so much turmoil and craziness going on it can be hard at times to remain encouraged in God, positive, and hopeful about life.  It can be quite a job just trying to remain upbeat about things.

 "Come to me, all of you who are struggling and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."  Matthew 11:28-30

​It's important that each and everyone of us learns the art, habit, or skill of staying upbeat and positive no matter what if we're to live joyfully in spite of the many terrible, negative, and traumatic events that take place on a continual basis around us. 

The secret or not so secret way to remain encouraged about things I've found most effective is to keep in mind that The Creator Almighty is sovereign, always in control, only desires goodness for you while co-authoring your journey in life, and seeks to ensure that His love abounds in your life in every way, shape, and form possible. 

​It's our duty to seek and stay in His face constantly without waiver through meditation and prayer allowing our minds and hearts to be shaped and transformed by Him.  We're to place our ultimate hope, cares, and trust in Him.  And we're to likewise do our darnedest to be a source of hope and light to others.

It's pretty simple when you think about it.  Place your attention on the life of Christ, spend time learning about him and how he lived, and seek to copy, or mimic what you can when you can.  The benefit, or side effect of that is a Kingdom of Heaven experience here on Earth in your personal life resonating outwardly to all under the impact of your influence. 

​You are here with purpose, are precious, and have the capacity and availability to live a powerful, peaceful, and supernatural life when you're totally sold out to The Creator Almighty through his son Jesus Christ.  Get back to bible basics and read the Word daily, pray regularly, fellowship with the body of the Called Out frequently, listen to inspiring and uplifting messages and music, smile, give and get hugs, and do whatever it takes to mitigate negativity and keep to keep toxic emotions at bay in your life.  Life is fleeting and it behooves you to squeeze as much goodness out it as you can! 

​May His face shine on you and give you peace in its full meaning!  Peace and blessings!

"Isaiah 26:3-4(KJV) Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength"
