Accentuate the Positive - Philippians 4:4-9

Positive Christian Attitudes, Bing Crosby, Song
A Biblical cure from discouragement...

I remember an old Bing Crosby song my mom used to sing called "Accentuate the Positive." 

I't lyrics encouraged a positive perspective on life, and they remind me of an even better lyric from Philippians:

Rejoice in the Lord always ... in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things ... And the God of peace will be with you..." Philippians 4:4-9 

Christ promises a perfect eternity filled with joy beyond our imagination.

This allows us to "accentuate" the positive no matter how hard our circumstances.

    1. You're sweet, Alecia, but I know singing is not my gift : )
      My son is a music minister at his church, and he has the musical ability in our family.
      I'll stick to writing : )

  5. Gail I am all for filling our minds with the positive. It doesn't make Christian naive, it just lets us take every thought captive for Christ. Good stuff in to my heart, good stuff out! Starting with God's word.
