A Positive Mindset Part 2

JANUARY 29TH, 2022      |     The following are ways to help you reclaim your joy in the Lord and your cheerfulness of heart: 

1. Confess Sin – This allows God to forgive you of your sins and permits refreshing times with God to flow again (Acts 3:19). 
2. Cultivate Gladness – Be happy when God blesses others, rejoice with them, and give a helping hand to others (Romans 12:15-16).
3. Confidence in God – Don’t allow the enemy to bring you down when God is lifting you to higher ground. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ (Romans 8:1-2). Start your day with Him.
4. Cut Back – Trim back commitments that God isn’t asking you to make. Delight yourself in the Lord (Psalm 37:4) and ask Him to make known what matters most. Be mindful that the joy of the Lord is within you (Psalm 28:7), not in people, places, position, or achievements.
5. Consider Seeking Help – God’s desire is for you to be whole in body, mind, soul, and spirit (Psalm 31:7). If your spirit is crushed, it may be wise to seek professional help to heal and gladly proceed forward in life.

Ask God to forgive you for a less-than-positive mindset. Ask Him if you should seek professional help to discover the root cause.

Ask the Holy Spirit to help you cultivate a merry heart that blesses Him, others, and you.
