I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” but what does this phrase mean to you—and more important, do you look for the positive outcome in stormy situations? I like to define this phrase as a time in our lives when things seem to be going wrong, but we believe that God does indeed have a plan for us and our difficulties will soon pass. We somehow find the faith that things will be better soon. We look past the storm and realize that every cloud has a silver lining.
If the words you spoke appeared on your skin, would you still be beautiful? I came across this terrific question recently, and it’s perfect for my topic today! Taking my last week’s thought to surround ourselves with positive people, this week I want to share how important it is to speak only positive words. Of course we wouldn’t intentionally say negative things about others—that’s not our true nature. But sometimes we don’t even realize we are doing it.
