Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

Another year is coming to an end, and there is so much to be grateful for. Most of the year in my Staff Trax I speak of giving gratitude, being in prayer, giving thanks daily, and helping others around you.

With the positive energy that you develop when giving gratitude and staying positive throughout your day, you will have fewer days that are not so gloomy. People who focus on the positive over the negative contribute to positive outcomes.

The expression “every cloud has a silver lining” focuses on finding something positive in a gloomy situation. That’s easier said than done when you’re living with chronic pain, financial worries, or relationship problems every day. But just because it’s hard to notice the silver linings during dark times, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
