Examples of positively in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Your confession is bound to be your possession sooner or later. Besides, every creation including you is a product of the spoken word of God. Now that signifies, you ought to use your mouth positively by professing/confessing positivities/possibilities and not at all negativities/impossibilities. Listen up, God knows what/all you need but he expects/demands you to undoubtedly/emphatically profess it/them over and over again to his hearing/ears until you possess it/all of them. Yes, even the scripture says in (Psalms chapter 81 : 10). It says, open up your mouth wide and then he (God) will fill it up with positivities/possibilities/realities. That's just what the scripture says and that evidently indicates, you should use your mouth ceaselessly to confess/profess positivities/possibilities and never negativities/impossibilities. Because, your mouth is equally meant/made for confessing/professing positivities/possibilities and not just only for mere eating/talking. Therefore come on, hence forth go ahead/dare to seal/solidify your faith with the words of your mouth.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    You are what you think, speak or dream. Yes! so dare to think big, speak positively, dream big and then get busy i.e. act positively and relentlessly towards ensuring the realization of your dreams. For, you will surely end up living big like millionaires and billionaires.


    Words are like seeds that are creative naturally. So, which words have you been speaking all the while about yourself, your present time and the future ahead of you? Have you been professing impossibilities and ­negativities rather than possibilities and positivities? However, you should be professing positivities and possibilities and never the opposite. Because, surely you will sooner or later reap or eat the fruits of your words which could be favourable or unfavourable depending on what you are sowing presently with your own mouth. Oh! yes, your words matter. And they do determine a lot. Therefore, beware of your words. I mean, always speak positively and never negatively. ~Emeasoba George.

  4. Anuj Somany:

    True respect to an elderly person is to positively accept whatever he/she says is right, but also proactively correct whenever he/she is wrong.

  5. Olivia Wein:

    A lot of it is trying to shift my perspective to be grateful, as much as it's sad and hard, I'm trying to also ask how we can use this time positively and help others and strengthen our little community, even if it's just calling a friend.
