WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?
I know things are tough; however, I also know that you are stronger than the trial that you’re going through. Set your mind on things above, and don't give up. Think continually of the good things that I have spoken to you, and don’t focus so much on the negative things that are happening. I blessed you with a gift to see the good things and the bad things. However, you’ve chosen to concentrate more on the bad things, and you’ve ignored the blessings around you. I created a world filled with beauty and the wonders of My love, but you’ve chosen to think about things that bring sadness to your day.
Let Me remind you; in this life, you will go through tough times. However, I overcame them all when I gave My life for you and blessed you with the authority to overcome them as well. Nothing lasts forever; even the hard time that you are going through right now will soon fade away. Therefore, don’t spend all your time reflecting on them. Yes, I know there are times you must think about them. So, when those thoughts come to mind, place them in My capable hands. Afterward, fill your mind with the good things you want to happen, and draw blessings into your life.
Are things so bad that you feel there’s nothing better to think about? Well, take a moment and look in a mirror. That’s a good place to start. Do you see what I see? You have been blessed with beautiful eyes that can see the wonders I’ve created. Some people can’t see what you see. So, isn’t that something to be happy about? Yes, it is. Therefore, take some time this day and think about the blessings that surround you. When you think about your blessings, they will draw you closer to Me. And when you are closer to Me, I will keep you in perfect peace. Isn’t that what you want, to have thoughts of peace flooding your mind?
Thinking good thoughts will always draw you away from the troubles of life. Therefore, focus on the good things that I have done and watch those thoughts of despair dissipate. This day, you have a choice to make. There will always be hard times and good times, but it’s up to you whether you choose to entertain thoughts of despair or thoughts that will bless you. It is easier to focus on the good things; that would be My choice. What’s yours?
Read and Meditate on His Word
Pro. 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
Isa. 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Php 4:7-8 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
