Looking At The World In a Positive Light
Some situations are just difficult. They might come from a medical diagnosis, financial problems, or other issues that aren’t enjoyable experiences. Along with those kinds of concerns, there are situations that aren’t necessarily bad or difficult, but they might be unique, unusual, or not ideal.
In short, things don’t always go the way you plan for them to. But there are always ways to find light, love, and joy, even in unlikely situations. The key is being willing to look.
What Does Finding A Positive Light Mean?
Finding positive light means finding the joy, the peace, and the good, no matter what else may be happening in your life. Sometimes things can look dark, depressing, and sad, but there is always also light. When you have faith that God is watching out for you, you can find that light more easily.
You’ll see the good in things, even if there’s also sadness or struggle. Difficult times are necessary for you to appreciate the good times, as the contrast is what makes the experience stronger.
You’ll also see that God has a plan, and you’re a part of it. As one His children, you can trust that everything He does is for your benefit and care.
There are times when it seems like everything is going wrong, and that’s when you need to look the hardest for the light. It’s also when God knows your pain and your struggles, and when He understands that the world can seem cold and unfair. Trusting in him will never lead you wrong.
How Can You Look for More Positive Light?
There are days when you don’t need to look for any light. It’s just everywhere, and easy to see. Those are some of the best days, but they aren’t every day. There will be days when looking for the light will be very difficult, and where you’ll have to search for even a flicker.
That doesn’t mean the light isn’t there! Standing on God’s promises is one of the very best ways to look for additional light. It can help you recognize light even in dark times, and see the value and beauty in uncommon or complicated situations.
Can You Be the Light for Others?
Another way to look at the world in a positive light is to be the light, for yourself and for others. When you trust in God and do your best to help others trust in Him, as well, you can bring light and joy to your own life and the lives of other people. They’ll see the peace you have, and they’ll want it, too.
That doesn’t mean saying that things are great when they really aren’t, of course, because it’s important to acknowledge that some things can be a struggle. It’s okay to acknowledge unique or difficult circumstances. But don’t unpack and live there. Don’t dwell on what’s wrong when there’s so much going right.
When you’re always looking at the world in a positive light, you’ll be more likely to see it, even when times aren’t as bright as you’d like them to be. Share that light with others, and it can help God bless all of you on your journeys.
