You were created to be filled with joy, peace, confidence, creativity, but if you allow worry in, it pushes out the peace…. the reason some people don't enjoy their lives is because their container, their heart, is contaminated with so many things. And the scripture says,"Give no place to the enemy".

We are indeed created to be filled with only good things. We are created perfect by God.

Exactly the reason why feeling sick and getting sick closely follows negative thoughts. When you are at peace and happy, do you feel any physical pain? No, right?

So true. Though it is so easy to be consumed by negative things.

Every morning, when we wake up, we need to empty out anything negative from the day before. Somebody offended you at work, they didn't treat you right, it's easy to let that offense stay. Don't let them continue to hurt you by holding onto the offense. Being offended is not harming them, it's harming you.

Negative feelings just feel so heavy. And when you carry them around all they, you won’t be able to appreciate anything.

For me, before I go to bed, I empty out all things negative. I can’t get a good night’s sleep if I feel burdened by negative thoughts and feelings.

That is true, you can’t even smile when your baby smiles at you. I know that from experience.

Proverbs says,"A relaxed attitude lengthens life". You can be 80 years old and young at heart. Your spirit never ages.

If you’ll make this decision not to give away your joy and live each day happy, God promises you’ll be strong; you’ll have more peaceful relationships, and you’ll accomplish more. He says a joyful heart is good medicine! Hold on to your joy and let it heal your heart so you can experience the blessings He has in store for you!
