EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Do we truly understand that God has us in His loving care? He does. Each day we have a choice to choose optimism or pessimism in how we view things and how we live!
We can choose to be afraid, or we can face our fears with God and trust Him with what He can do for us through His Word.
“Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Each day I must choose to be conscientiously optimistic. Trust me; it’s not always easy staying positive and handing my fears over to God. If I succumb to the pressures around me or the fears that rise up, my days end up wasted, and deep inside, I know it’s the choice I made because of my own attitude. I have to choose not to allow fear to overtake me and change the course of my direction.
I encourage you to focus on God’s beautiful blessings and the wonderful opportunities He gives you while living life for Him. Pray with your petitions through any uncertain days you are facing now and through the toughest times that may still hit you later.
Despite your “feelings,” it should be your heart’s desire to choose “optimism” because you relinquish your prayers and petitions to God and ask Him to use you on any given day. You CAN overcome fear with God when you trust and surrender your fear to Him completely! With God, ALL things are possible.
Optimism or pessimism actually play a pivotal role in the health of your body as well. Don’t get yourself caught in this trap. Our minds are POWERFUL creations, and our body’s health follows the thoughts we dwell on.
Prayer can help you with overcoming fearful thoughts. Pray for your family and friends, and others you may not know well. They need your prayers. Remember, give your requests to God. He’s got this, and He has you! ❤
