Meds for Negative Nellie

Depressed and negative you might be but even you can help yourself and stop trying to make us miserable too.

“If you get rid of unfair practices, quit blaming victims; quit gossiping about other people’s sins, if you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight. (Isaiah 58:9-11, MSG)

Stop trying so hard friends. Be a light right in the place where you are, right here and now.

“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16, MSG)

Be a candle. Brighten your corner of the world.

Prayer- Father God, let the light of Jesus shine into and through me. Amen.
