I build my life on the redemptive work of Jesus, so I am an optimist. Jesus took my sufferings on Himself to remove all my sins and sufferings (Isaiah 53:4-5). This is the biblical foundation for my optimism.
Because of this certainty of Jesus’ sacrifice and His wonderful promises, biblical realism is Godly optimism.
Jesus promises there will be no more death or pain; He will wipe away my tears
He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.
My faith makes me optimistic
Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.”
I am not afraid or discouraged for my God is with me wherever I go
Haven’t I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
I know all things work to the good, for I love God
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.
I guard my heart with optimistic promises, for it determines the course of my life
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it is the wellspring of life.
I can do everything through Jesus who gives me strength
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.
Every day God made for me is a reason to rejoice and be happy
This is the day that the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it!
Optimistic words give grace to others
Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but only what is good for building others up as the need may be, that it may give grace to those who hear.
I know God’s plan for me is to give me a promising future and hope
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says the LORD, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.”
I am optimistic, for I cherish the love that never gives up, believes all, and endures through every circumstance
Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
I keep a cheerful heart for it is good medicine
A cheerful heart makes good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Jesus gives me eternal life
For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
I know my God will be exalted
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.
God’s armor enables me to stand firm against all strategies of the devil
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Because I put my hope in God, I am not discouraged
Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him: my Savior, my helper, and my God.
The Bible that God inspired teaches truth and keeps me optimistic
Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.
Jesus is my refuge when trouble comes
The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who take refuge in him.
