Stare at the Positive

We all have a tendency to mull things over again and again when we’re upset. We recite litanies of negativity to ourselves. If someone called you up to whine all the time, you’d eventually hang up the phone, right?

When your inner voice becomes a whiner; when you find yourself repeating the same problems to yourself in different ways all day long, it’s not doing you any good. Hang up the phone!

“But what if the problems I’m upset about are real?” That’s fine! Deal with them! Just don’t stare at them all day. When I go for a walk, the sun is real. And it’s BIG. But if I stare at it, not only will I miss the beautiful world all around me, it’ll fry my retinas! 

Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” You need to choose which part of reality you’re going to stare at. The default setting for a child of God is setting our eyes on things that lift us up to heaven. Not things that drag us down.
