When we form a close relationship with God, He gradually guides us away from all the negativity in our lives, and He shows us a new and more beautiful way to live. This way of living is a daily way of living, meaning that each and every day we will strive to walk with Jehovah.
Others may still view you and me as the same negative people that they once knew, but God knows our hearts. Keep looking up and keep walking forward, and living in the positive way that God wants you too.
[ Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 NKJV
