With over 50 million people in South Africa, it is no wonder that the state of the country is going downhill. All I ever hear and read these days is negative. Negative thoughts, negative words, being spoken about everything and it’s not helping. In fact it is causing the problems to become worse.
Many people believe in the idea that our thoughts create our reality… Literally. Well, do you believe that?
Whether you believe in The Law of Attraction, or The Bible, or whatever other spiritual avenue you come from, you should be able to understand the concept of our negative thoughts creating negative outcomes.
It’s common sense really.
The more negative we think, the more negative we will become, and eventually we will create that exact thing that we were worrying about. It will manifest.
Now “The Secret” teaches Biblical principles and just leaves God out of the picture, but still, many people out there believe in the concept of “Thoughts become things.”
Well, in Proverbs 18:21 it says “21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
In James it talks about the taming of the tongue and that is because our words have power.
Here is another quote:
"Kind words are a creative force, a power that concurs in the building up of all that is good, and energy that showers blessings upon the world." - Lawrence G. Lovasik
Instead of thousands of people speaking death over our beloved country, we should rather be speaking LIFE over our Country and its leaders and its future.
That in itself will bring about a positive change in each and every one of us.
If we linger on negative we ourselves will become negative and that can do nothing other than impacting our world negatively.
So let’s all try make a mind-set change, and no matter what we see happening in our beautiful South Africa, let’s make an effort to speak positive about the future of our country and its people.
Let’s speak life and not death and we will start to see a true change in the state of this country.
I am sure each and every-one of us wants to see our country go from strength to strength and with a little more effort, to stop being so morbid and negative, I believe we can all make the difference.
50 million positive thoughts could really make a huge difference.
