It’s easy to be positive when things are going great but what a strong person it takes to stand immovable in your joy even in the midst of a sea of negativity. To choose to continue to be positive and to focus on the blessings you do have instead of what the storm raging around you has taken. When it feels like the world is attacking you to resist the temptation to give in and become a victim but to stand up and say “No devil not today! I know who I am and I know my character and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or what else is going on. The joy of the Lord is my strength and I will mount up with wings like eagles. I will run and not be weary!” Sometimes it hurts to be one to stand strong but I’ve done it both ways. I’ve given in and become the victim and I’ve stood up and faught and said “No, not today!” And in my experience, the storm lasts a lot longer when you give in and become it’s victim and get dragged along with it rather than standing your ground and letting it pass over you.
“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” -Psalm 30:5
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we do not give up” -Galations 6:9
Yours in the fight,
