Today I decided to step out of my comfort zone and dedicate a simple post to all the naysayers who never have nothing positive or encouraging to say. And would like to share a few words to encourage someone today.
We can become easily discouraged when faced with difficult situations. No matter how many times man says no, God’s yes is the final answer. God knows exactly what we are dealing with every day. He hears the prayers of the righteous. Whatever you’re believing God for, he will answer.
Sometimes to find peace of mind you have to remove yourself from things that serve no purpose. Naysayers, doubters, gossipers, haters are included. Let go of what doesn’t belong. Be at peace.
Naysayers to me are Negative Attitudes Yielding Senseless Attacks Yearning Exclusive Recognition; simply put. They are jealous for no reason. When you encounter someone who has too many reasons to complain about everything and can never see the good in anything, run! They will do everything in their power to make you just as miserable as they are. Remember, misery loves company.
People with negative attitudes serve no good purpose. If they don’t have anything positive to say. Stay away from them. Association brings assimilation. Be careful who you surround yourself with. People who constantly make the worst out of a good situation and focus too much on the negative are not ones you want to surround yourself with.
Pessimists will defeat your purpose, if you let them. When you encounter a naysayer, don’t be intimidated by them. Tell them thank you. Pray for them. Don’t let the actions of others become your standard of living. You are not designed to be like them. Make the best of the situation. You are made to stand out, not fit in.
When you give in to negative thoughts you’ve already lost the battle. Don’t dwell on the negative. Bless those who curse you, even when they persecute you. It doesn’t matter what people say about you. It’s not true. You don’t look like what you’ve been through. Don’t get weary. You’re Winning!
Stop inviting haters to pity parties only to have them extend invitations to more miserable, uninvited guests. Keep your secrets to yourself.
Don’t listen to naysayers. They don’t know you. Whatever they say about you isn’t true. Declare, I am and will be all that God says I am. I am victorious!
Be blessed! –JD
