POSITIVE MINDS PRODUCE POSITIVE RESULTS
you know that positive minds produce positive lives? Negative minds
produce negative lives. Positive thoughts are always full of faith and
hope. Negative thoughts are always full of fear and doubt.
people are afraid to hope because they have been hurt so much in our
lives. They experience so many disappointments that they do not think
they can face the pain of another one. Therefore, they refuse to hope
so they will not be disappointed in case things did not work out as they
hurts! But this type of behavior sets up a negative lifestyle.

He loves me. Whatever He does will be good, and I will be blessed.”
to think positively about your life: practice being positive in each
situation that arises. Even if whatever is taking place in your life at
the moment is not so good, expect God to bring good out of it, as He
has promised in His Word.

one of the excerpts in it that has helped me to see, “What I think in my
