Good World > Bad World
1 : a doctrine that this world is the best possible world
2 : an inclination to put the most favorable construction upon actions and events or to anticipate the best possible outcome
1 : an inclination to emphasize adverse aspects, conditions, and possibilities or to expect the worst possible outcome
2 : the doctrine that reality is essentially evil
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. –Philippians 4:11-13
With God renewing my mind He has taught me to view the glass as half full. He wants us to see the good in life. Which actually means He wants us to find Him in life… yes, in this world. He wants us to become so optimistic that everywhere we go we are filled with the presence of God and literally bring goodness with us into a room and change the atmosphere.
Lord today I choose to be an optimist. I choose to see the good in this world. I choose to be rooted and grounded in love; and I choose this because of the reality of your love which you have shown to me.
Without the love of God in my life I tried to be an optimist but it was hard—it was honestly a lot of work. But with the love of God, He makes it easy. With the love of God I’ve realized that this world is far more perfect than I had ever thought or imagined.
May your minds be renewed today to see the good in this life:
Which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. –Colossians 1:27
