Philippians 4:8. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
There is so much negative thinking these days. During terrible hard times it is hard to keep your mind off the problem. We can think about it so much so that the thoughts just go round and round until we think we are going insane. Doing what is right and healthy always seems more difficult than to do what is not right and healthy.
Since more and more negative things keep happening in this world, the verse above is even more needed to be obeyed. It is the way Jesus would have done things. And there is plenty of good things going on around us, if we are willing to stay focus on them. If we obey we would be sure to get the peace only Jesus can give, that the world cannot give. He would give us this peace gladly. The peace helps you to be victorious in your situation. You would be able to think more clearly and be able to hear God’s voice more clearly in each and every situation, you find yourself in. It takes a lot of practice for most of us, but it is worth it.
Prayer is so powerful and we need to pray for everybody not just our family.
