Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation (Hab 3:17-18)~ When a negative depressing thought pops into your mind, count your blessings, and continue counting them, until your thoughts move in a positive direction. Positive thoughts restore positive perspective. When negative things happen, take positive action! These are the only appropriate responses to negative thoughts and negative occurrences. Negative thoughts are poison to your spirit! They warp your sense of self control and yield improper results! They are not welcome, and they don’t stand a chance when you take positive action. Negative actions in a negative situation only yield more negativity – Yes, it’s a vicious cycle; one that you can break by simply…being POSITIVE!
