"You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow, Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” That is right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you—under them you’re perfectly safe" Psalms 91:1-3 MSG italics and emphasis mine
It is very hard to stay positive when everything around is negative, worse still, if you get sucked and participate in the "drama of the negatives", that is all you will continue to experience. Somehow, find a way to "see" and "act" beyond and in spite of the negatives. Being "positive" in the midst of "negative" e.g. help the poor while in poverty.
The secret is in going to a "dark room" to enquire of the Lord for a WORD to stand on. The place of meditation and waiting on the Lord with a notebook is the birthplace for boldness|guts and miracles – healing, salvation, provision, and business. Get into the darkroom to develop your negatives into beautiful picture for all to see.
