“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” (Php 4:8).

A positive outlook moves us toward a positive outcome, but a bad attitude is often self-fulfilling. How can we be pessimists with a God who is working all things out for our good?
