Empty Out The Negative

  • Published: 30 April 2017
  • It’s easy to go through life holding on to things that are weighing us down—guilt, resentment, worry and doubt. These things naturally come. The problem is that when we allow them in, they take up space for the good things that should be there.

    In this message, Joel will show you how your life is like a container that God created to be filled with joy, peace, confidence, creativity and much more! But if you allow worry in, it pushes out peace and all the good things God longs to deposit in you. Learn how to apply David’s prayer in Psalm 103:5 in your life—“God fills my life with good things. So that I stay young and strong.” Discover the condemnation and guilt tactics the enemy tries to launch at us and how to stay on the offense.

    As you empty out the negative in your life, God can fill your life with good things. He’ll give you beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, and you will have peace in the midst of any storm.

                                                        Living in this world gives you so many negatives it is hard to unload the container . If we all could go and live in wilderness somewhere for an amount of time , with no money worries , no job worries , no bad neighbours , etc then we would all live longer. The fact is that those feelings , emotions are normally real. You have a bad boss and idiot co workers . your neighbour is noisy and inconsiderate Your landlord does not care if you are hungry , just as long as you have his over priced rent every week for him to collect . the tradesman you hired is being a jerk . The Bank is raising interest rates . The local government is raising all taxes . Everyone and everything seems to be out to rip you off . no wonder people are in the negative . Having some doubt about things is normal , as you just can not trust everything you hear .And somehow yes MONEY seems to be a factor in everything that is loaded into our container . Even at the port , they probably want high fees to unload your container of grief .

I live a life of being good and sometimes I even take time to volunteer, to give back and by virtue, receive. But my heart is filled with all those worries, the sadness and the weight of the challenges in life. It's a daily struggle to overcome those feelings . I feel alone but for the sake of myself and my family, I know that I need to address this weight. In searching for resources on the internet, I came across this Empty Out The Negative video. I don't generally listen to religious anything these days, a childhood spend in church can have that effect on a person. But I have heard of you and the subject seems just right for me. It's just what I needed today - I guess that's God doing his magic. Thank you,
