In life, you will experience ups and downs. Sometimes when we are up though, we always think we will remain up, but the truth is, life is a season. You will encounter some failures and trials and sometimes you will feel like you will be in this state for a long time. As a result, some of us tend to accept these “failed” state of conditions as permanent. No matter how long you have been in that state or how many times you fall, always strive to rise.
One way to rise up, despite the many times you fall, is to think positive. If you keep thinking the worst about your situation, more than likely your situation will not improve. However, if you think positively, you can get out of that situation. After all, you are what you think. There are some of you who are wondering why you are not getting better; it is because you think you are not going to get better. The word of Lords says in Philippians 4:8 says that “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
I don’t know about you, but I remember I used to think so negatively until I told myself that if I think the opposite of how I feel, then I will get the desired results. However, that was a lie. You see when you think positively, you must believe something good will happen.
I personally believe that for you to successfully get out of your state, you not only have to think positively, but you also must believe in what you think. Some of us say we are thinking positively but we doubt what we think. Stop saying you believe but at the same time thinking the worst. This is like a double minded person. In James 1:6-8 “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is a like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”
Always remember life is a season
Whenever and whatever you are going through, always remember that life is a season. Your condition is just temporary. Nothing lasts forever just like seasons do not last forever. Therefore, one of the keys to get out of your situation is to believe that and remember that what you are going through is for a season.
Your thoughts and actions will determine your destination. Some of us think that we are not good enough and that bad things will always follow us. If you are thinking that way, try to change your thoughts by first believing that something good will take place for you. For those of you are thinking positively and have not seen the manifestation of what you desired yet, just don’t give up. Continue to think positively, believe, and remember life is a season.
