It's Okay to Be Negative Sometimes!

Written by Dina Giolitto

Continued from page 1

What's stopping you from asking questions now?

What's so bad about negative thoughts? What's so positive about someone else telling you how to think and feel? And above all: how can we ever make a motion for positive action if no one is willing to point outrepparttar negative and then correct it?

Consider this: withoutrepparttar 138450 negative,repparttar 138451 positive would not BE.

Withoutrepparttar 138452 dark, there would be no light. Withoutrepparttar 138453 cold, there would be no warm. Withoutrepparttar 138454 yin, there would be no yang. And some of us can only feel complete after we've engaged a full cycle of negative thoughts so that we may rise to a higher, more positive place.

So to anyone trying to hard-sell yourepparttar 138455 idea that you should curb your 'negativity' and replace it with that which is brighter, cheerier, more bouyant, more accepting, more agreeable, and above and beyond all else, MORE POSITIVE...

Tell them thanks forrepparttar 138456 nice ideas... but you'd rather be yourself, with your own opinions and your own unique ability to reason. If it's your wish to explore your negative side withrepparttar 138457 intent to purify your own soul, you are surely allowed to do that.

Having occasional negative thoughts doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you REAL and WHOLE.

In matters of spirituality, remember this: No one shall dictate to you how to act, speak and above all think. And that's one thing about which I'm absolutely positive.

An Ear to Hear

Is there a parallel inrepparttar Bible that tells aboutrepparttar 138315 movement of animals before impending destruction? Yes, there is. Genesis 7: 5-10 reads, “Noah did according to all thatrepparttar 138316 Lord had commanded him. (vs6) Now Noah was six hundred years old whenrepparttar 138317 flood of water came uponrepparttar 138318 earth. (vs7) Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him enteredrepparttar 138319 ark because ofrepparttar 138320 water ofrepparttar 138321 flood. (vs8) Of clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that creeps onrepparttar 138322 ground, (vs9) there went intorepparttar 138323 ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. (vs10) It came about afterrepparttar 138324 seven days, thatrepparttar 138325 water ofrepparttar 138326 flood came uponrepparttar 138327 earth” (NASB). Interesting, is it not? It appears that even animals can hearrepparttar 138328 voice of God.

If you think that God is concerned aboutrepparttar 138329 safety of animals, you are correct. If you think that God is concerned about animal safety over humans, you’ve missed my point. Why were animals spared on December 26, 2004, and 300,000 people died? Was God blood thirsty for humans? No, I don’t think so. I think people died because man has lost his ear for God. I think man has become so accustomed to being rescued by science andrepparttar 138330 latest technology that he has desensitized his ability to hearrepparttar 138331 subtle voice of warning in his spirit.

The Bible is one giant forecast of impending judgment. Unless a man turns from his wicked ways, he will come to judgment. The Bible has been sounding off for generations for people everywhere to get right with God through His Son Jesus Christ. God is serious about saving us from our sins, but man has dulled his ears to redemption’s call. I believe that man could turn to God and God would spare him of many miseries in this world. I believe that man can develop a spiritual sensitivity to “feel” or senserepparttar 138332 voice of God inwardly, warning him of what’s coming onrepparttar 138333 face ofrepparttar 138334 earth.

I believe if nations would turn to God and worship Him, loving one another instead of trying to kill each other, God would speak so loudly through their nations’ leaders and principle players that His voice would ring true in every word they spoke. I believe that God is all about healing and sparing lives. Jesus died onrepparttar 138335 Cross not only for my rescue from sin but for my wholeness in living.

God has not turned away from man. Man has turned away and become desensitized to what God wants him to hear and know. This ought not to be so. Turn to God. Listen to Him. He will guide you to safety. After all, if an animal can “feel”repparttar 138336 vibrations of tremors and move to safety, certainly man—created in God’s image and likeness—can get advance warnings from approaching danger also. This isrepparttar 138337 Bible’s message in short—as it is appointed unto man once to die, after this comes judgment.

Keeprepparttar 138338 faith. Stayrepparttar 138339 course. Jesus is coming soon. Be advised, and move to safety in Jesus.
