Positive Thoughts for Hard Times

 

Thinking positively isn’t simply trying to fool yourself into believing good is coming instead of evil. Rather, it is a strategy for defeating Satan, who tries to get us to think the worst in every situation. He is the enemy of our souls – our minds, wills and emotions.

Trusting God

When life on earth
Comes to a close,

The road we’ve traveled
All our lives to find –
That eternal home.

We often don’t understand
God’s ways and means,
But He said they are
Much higher than ours.

We cry out in pain,
God, help me understand!”
But must know He has a reason;
Trusting Him –
Though we cannot see how –
To bring good
Out of all we call bad.

Cast all your cares upon Him,
For He cares for YOU!
(1 Peter 5:7)
