Accentuate the Positive

Finally breather, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8

For some reason this reminds me of the tune “accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative.”  Thinking on negative things makes us negative. It creates a mindset. If we are constantly dwelling on the bad things that can happen or on how everything seems to be going from bad to worse then that is how we feel. God calls us to be joyful in all things. As another song say “put on a happy face” It may not make the bad things go away but it just may make you feel better.


Trustworthy God, we know so little and try to understand way beyond out capabilities. Help us to leave things to you and just say as said by Hildegard of Bingen “all will be well, and all will be well, and all things will be well.”
