Following the positive voices
“Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock, and the rain descended, the floods came,.. and it did not fall, for it was founded
MATTHEW 7:24-25

Faith is a two sided power. On one side is the activity of rejecting negative inputs. On the opposite side is the activity of following positive voices. Even an electric cord has both a negative and positive wire. So even as you reject the destructive negative stimuli that enter your brain, also except and listen to the positive emotions and incentives that whisper in the back of your mind. I know of no positive voice in any of the person that is more helpful to me on a moment to moment basis than that of my closest friend Jesus Christ! How can you follow the positive voice of god? Constantly ask god questions and wait for his answer in hidden corner of your brain. Read what he said, what he did, and how we live in the Bible. See his advice and expect him to answer. The still, small voice will come into the silence of the holy chamber of your self conscious. It is the voice of your friend Jesus Christ. He nudges you forward. He affirms you can be forgiven of all your sins. He instills new passion to do his good work. He is speaking to you through this moment of medication. Simply listen, then follow. That means you will take action.

Sorting things out optimistically
“He who follows righteousness and mercy…Finds life, righteousness and honor.”
PROVERBS 21:21

By now you’ve discovered that the road of faith isn’t a wee small. In fact, it can be downright jarring. The jolts can get to you if you don’t watch out. I’ve had to ride over some rough roads in my life. You must keep on believing that even the jolts of a rough road of life can have a positive influence on you. Faith is sorting things out optimistically. That’s exactly what happens when you optimistically see the jolts that come your way as the impetus to re-examine your life. Years ago I told the story of the potato Farmer who sorted out the big potatoes from the little ones by riding to town on the rough roads. “ big potatoes ride to the top on rough roads, “ he said . My daughter loves to sort out the raisons in her raisin Bran cereal and she has discovered that if she’s shakes her bowl of cereal, the raisons bounce to the top. Welcome those rebuffs that can bring out the deeper qualities of life.

Reading the good between the lines
“You know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke.”
JOSHUA 23:14

“ reading between the lines “ is something we all do . It’s like “ putting and two together “ a mental activity in which everybody engages. The difference between the person who’s living by faith and the negative thinking person is that the pessimist reads only bad news between the lines where the optimist reads the good news. Two birds-a vulture and a hummingbird-Fly over the California desert. One sees a rotting carcass; the other, a fragrant flower. Each sees what it looks for! If you are of believer and have received guidance from god you don’t blind yourself to upcoming problems; but you do keep an eye on the possibilities! You never all problems to overpower the possibilities. The truth is you can always read either good or bad between the lines. There is something negative and something positive in every person, proposal and project. Both success and failure exist in every project. Your vote can go either way, but you cast the deciding vote and determine that destiny positively when you choose to read the good instead of the bad. Here is a powerful truth: what you see is what you will be. Believe the best! And then live with zest!

Resolving conflicts creatively
“Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes knowing that they generate strife. A servant of the Lord mst not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to reach patient.”
TIMOTHY 2:23 -24

Walking the walk of faith will ultimately lead you to a clearing where the sun can shine gloriously upon your well lived life. How can you be sure that the walk of faith will lead to such a happy ending. If you anticipate problems and tensions after making a commitment, you are not necessarily guilty of negative thinking. For the truth is, at any time you press forward toward your goal you will create conflict. The negative thinkers become defensive when they face conflicts. Positive thinkers become peacemakers when they face conflicts. When you walk the walk of faith, you discipline yourself to resolve conflicts. Resolving conflicts always starts with a resolution: I will manage the conflict and not allow the conflict to manage the! I will not allow the conflict to collide, clash, or collapse the commitments I have made. I will be more patient and determined to turn the conflict around and in the process become healthier and happier than I was before! I am resolved to win out over the conflict!

Fixing problems
“ My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
CORINTHIANS 12:9

One of the greatest basketball coaches of all time was John wooden of UCLA, a fantastic, positive thinking Christian. One is his great motivating statements to his players was: “ nobody is a real loser – until he starts blaming someone else! “ Faith believes there is a solution to every problem. Even when the problem defies solutions, faith believes that we can be positive anyway! I’ll go to work right now and fix my problem, just as soon as I fix my attitude! Dear lord, I’m aware that the biggest part of any problem is my attitude toward it. I thank you, that you and I together can fix that today. Your strength is my strength, so I’m trusting you. Help me, oh God, my Father, to bloom with such faith that I will be surprised, and so will. everybody else who watches me go through this trying time. Thank you, Lord. Amen.

Inventing solutions
”..always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.”
1 THESSALONIANS 5:15

Years ago when my children were yet small, we spent our summer vacations in Iowa, visiting relatives. One summer, as we drove the long road back to California, we heard an enormous explosion! My left rear tire had blown out! I stood dejectedly on the shoulder looking at the tire now in shreds. Fortunately I had a spare tire, a jack, and crowbar readily available. I promptly put the Jack under the car and began to pump it up. Just as the flat tire rose a few inches, the Jack suddenly started bending as if it were made of rubber! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Never have I seen or heard of that. The tire slowly settled down again on the hard Adobe like surface . What could I do? I needed a new Jack! There was no gas station for miles and miles! Suddenly I had an idea: “ if I can’t raise the tire, why don’t I lower the ground? “ I took the only tool the crowbar, and proceeded to chip away at the hard ground around the flat tire. It was hard work, but after almost an hour, I could remove the bolts, lift the old tire off, and slip the spare tire on. The walk of faith can be fun! When something seems impossible just invent new products or new procedures. God gave you the only tool you need-Your brain.

Negotiating your way around obstacles
“May our Lord Jesus Christ….comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.”
2 THESSALONIANS 2:16-17

Dedicated possibility thinkers stubbornly refuse to accept defeat. Rather in the face of apparent catastrophe, they seek creative solutions. Possibility thinking is a process of creatively negotiating around obstacles. Begin the process by believing you will not accept defeat. Creatively calculate new and innovative schemes to achieve what appears to be unachievable. I am open to new strategies. I will review the price. I will call for a review of the proposal. I will break the stalemate. After all, I don’t want to have my own way; I just want to do the right thing. For I am a possibility thinker. I exercise faith. I am a courageous and wise negotiator. I believe in myself and in my God given dream. I, and only I, have the power to kill my dream. I do that if I’m unwilling to negotiate. God has entrusted a dream to my care and keeping. I will nurture it carefully; I will protect its life at all costs. I will prove faithful, O. Lord .

Catching the blame
“So then each of us shall account.. to God.”
ROMANS 14:12

When the finger points at you and criticism falls at your doorstep, when you catch the blame and are held responsible for a mistake, look upon this as a left handed compliment. You have tried your best; you are willing to be held accountable! It’s hard to find people who are brave enough to accept responsibility. The fear of being held liable for mistakes is enough to frighten many a person from a leadership position. You are able to face the reality that you may make a mistake. But you’re positive thinking faith gives you enough confidence in your own abilities to be willing to be held accountable! Until you’re able to conquer the fear of “ catching the blame “ you probably will not have enough courage to become the entrepreneur person you ought to be. All you need to do is overcome the fear of failure by looking for the positive, exercising optimism, stimulating positive emotions in people, and inspiring and encouraging people. Criticism doesn’t mean you will get fired-it will mean you will get inspired-to do and to be better! I have the courage to be accountable!

Allowing for error
“He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him since He ever lives to make intercession for them.”
HEBRES 7:25

A famous British statesman had his formal portrait done. When it was finished he took a look at what was a most remarkable likeness. The artist expecting compliments, instead received this rebuff. You didn’t paint the wart. The artist replied “ but, Sir, I think you are most attractive without it. Don’t you find this so? The politician answered, “ paint me as I am-Wart and all! “ Accepting yourself with all your imperfections gives evidence that your faith has achieved a remarkable level of maturity. Until you and I are able to allow for error in ourselves we will lack the grace to allow error in others. If you feel good today, you treat people well. If you feel bad, You treat others bad. Allow for error in yourself and others. Until you do you will never be able to have a strong relationship with anyone including God Almighty. Faith allows for error. The Lord accepts you anyway!
