Colossians 3:2 ESV
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
*Many of you may be familiar with this particular verse, but take a moment to meditate on what God is telling you...So many of us see negativity on a daily basis. Some of the negativity may be as extreme as death, while others may witness a traffic jam and call that terrible. Regardless to how big or small the circumstance is to us, God still wants us to focus and meditate on His capability to cause change and any positivity that we can see and obtain from the situation. If you are not an optimistic person of faith at the moment, this will begin the process of you looking to God for guidance in order to uncover HIS IDEA of a solution or how you can be used as a vessel to assist. Remember, regardless of what you are experiencing you are still connected to people and have a job to do for your purpose. If we stay focused on the current situation, we can find ourselves accepting the circumstance while at the same time submerging ourselves in the turn of events. This causes you to become weakened and maybe cross over into disbelief because you have taken your mind off of how God sees you and what He promises, and have decided to adhere to the never ending and unresolved circumstances within the cycle of life that's orchestrated by the world. Therefore, who cares what other people think, what doesn't make sense, or what isn't lining up with logic?! Logic does not define those who are of God, but only the ability for all things to be possible through Christ Jesus (Matt. 19:26).
