People who think positively can see potential in even the most discouraging situations, while those who think negatively are quick to point out problems and limitations.
This goes beyond the proverbial idea of simply seeing a glass “half full” or “half empty” and extends to actually making decisions and taking actions based on either positive or negative thinking.
Have you ever noticed how negative thinking blows things out of proportion? Problems start to seem larger and much more difficult than they really are.
Sometimes, a problem may actually be impossible…in the natural. And a negative mindset forgets that nothing is impossible to God.
Meditating on God’s Word will rid you of negativity and help you refocus on who God is. A positive mindset based on God’s Word knows that nothing is beyond God. He is always present.
I’ve trained my brain to believe God and His Word, and I’ve experienced the power available to me through God when I’ve trusted Him more than my circumstances. We need to always remember that nothing is impossible with God.
Prayer Starter: Lord, it’s clear to me that I have nothing to gain from a ‘glass-half-empty’ mindset. Even in impossible situations, I know that You are there. I choose to see the positive side of things as I live in Your Word.
One of those days when you take a stock of your life… Are you a glass half empty or half full kind of person?

I believe in soul mates, I believe that when we were created by whatever God(dess) we were made in pairs. And every pair was separated from one another by the struggles and pain of the world. We spend our lives searching for what’s missing even if we don’t know what we are searching for. The glass is always half empty because someone else holds the other half. Its just one glass with two parts. You have always been my other half. Even before we knew each other, I’ve been yours.
“Feel so ill. It is so late and I have to open my store in the morning.
In the last month however much I feel my glass is half empty, in an instant I realise it truly is half full.
I’m thankful life dropped me, well for the experience. I suppose it was its own way of showing me how strong I truly am. I picked me back up & life gave me this guy that has nothing but admiration for me. Who touches me in places that I never existed &who I trust when I thought this (trust) would never be possible.
I can’t remember ever feeling so content but here I am feeling exactly that without a care about anyone’s judgment. Only I know the truth behind the past and only I need to know.
It takes a real person to see beyond. Take that as you wish.”
