Once you replace your negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start getting positive results. (Willie Nelson, Country music star)

It seems like such simple advice, but many have found it’s not all that easy. The news about illnesses, civil disruptions, and all the political palaver often make it difficult to think positively about life today. The simple answer—as difficult as it may seem to be –is to focus our attention on the positives of life and their source—the truth that God has given us in the Bible.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
