Choosing Joy

While generally I'm a steady, cheerful type person overall, I also tend to be a "glass half empty" kind of gal. When I hear an idea I can immediately see flaws in it. When I'm late I don't take it in stride--I get upset. When I think of people often I remember the hurtful things they have done before thinking of the kind things.

I don't try to be this way. Sometimes negative thoughts are just more natural than positive. But does "more natural" mean "okay?"

I read this a couple days ago, and haven't been able to get it off my mind since then.

What if I choose to see only the good?

What if I refuse to see anything but good?

Lord, make it so.
