Running to Jesus is the only answer
Proverbs 18:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
Do you ever feel like you just waste time thinking? Thinking too much about what you would do if you had another chance. Life moves quickly by us and things suddenly happen. We can have the best day ever and deal with hard thoughts at night. The truth is, we can not change yesterdays, but we certainly can change our mindset. A mindset to live in freedom and not living in the negative past that might try to pop back at you.
Proverbs 4:23 New International Version (NIV)
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
People say words that hurt our hearts
I wrote yesterday about days with titles. It can show us what we do have in life or don't have in life. Expectations of the day and we end up feeling sad. I talked with someone yesterday who dealt with so many hard things in one day. She just needed the day to be over. I have felt his same way with a day with a title. Great things happen, but expectations took me down the road of disappointment. I found myself saying, just be thankful for what you do have in life. Have you ever been there? It seems like you are grateful but expected a bit too much.
When you surrender your life to him, he begins a new work inside your heart. Each day we should guard our hearts and put on the full armor of God. There are ways to protect our minds and hearts from words plus actions of others. Only God can give peace and a new road to travel. Things change suddenly, but our peace with God can continue through it all. It doesn't mean that things won't hurt your heart but you learn to deal with it different.
Purpose this a good day and choose good thoughts! My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
