In a world full of negativity, stress, and depression, it is truly hard to stay happy and positive in life. Yes, we can all feel happiness and positivity in small things, however that happiness is not meant to last for we are building our happiness to material things and people.
So how to stay happy and positive in life permanently? To be honest, the answer is very simple. All you have to do is to put your focus on God and live your life according to His will and promises.
Simple, right? But regardless of how easy it is to be done, many people chose to focus their attention and happiness to other things like money for we all need money to survive this life.
Yes, it is 100% true that we all need money to get a better life, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to make the money as the foundation of our happiness because the true source of happiness, love, and contentment is our Lord Jesus Christ.
Without Him, we will not be able to have the life that we have now. And without Him, our life will be empty and dark because God is the only way, truth, and life.
So if you want to stay happy and positive in life, all you have to do is to live your life with simplicity and to fill your heart and mind with the words of God for He and His words are the bread of life.
With that in mind, if you think that you are ready to live a life together with God, here are 3 encouraging ways for you to stay happy and positive in life:
1. Choose positivity than negativity.
It is very difficult to avoid negativity most especially if we are facing a difficulty in life. Even if we wanted to look for the brighter side of that negativity, we cannot convince ourselves to think about positivity because it is our human nature to feel negativism.
However, we shouldn’t accept the fact that negativity is already part of our life because according to God, we always have a choice in life. You can choose between life and death or blessing and cursing.
So if you want a joyous life, you should always choose positivity rather than negativity because that’s the only way for us to feel the Holy presence of God. Also, if we will choose positivity, our life will become better and easier to deal with.
2. Always remember the promises of God.
If you want to avoid negativity, the best thing that you have to do is to think about the promises of God to us and that He will fulfill all His promises in the right time and moment.
So if you are so down right now and you feel that you are about to lose your hope, just pray and talk to God and tell Him that you will patiently wait for His fulfillment of promises.
Also, tell him that you are surrendering everything to Him so that God can freely drive your life and lead you to the right path according to His plans.
In other words, trust Him and His promises to us for you to avoid negativity.
3. Avoid negative things and people.
Negative things and people will not contribute any help in your life because they will cause you more pain, frustrations, and disappointments in life. They will make your situation more complicated for they are living in negativism.
So if you want to live a positive life, you should surround yourself with positive things and people for you to absorb the same positivity that they are seeing in life.
Overall, your happiness depends on your own choice in life. It is only you who can control your own happiness. So choose what God wants us to become for you to find your true happiness in life.
