Philippians 4:6-8 New Living Translation (NLT)
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Bad things can happen to each of us. It is what we do with our thoughts that matter. Our thoughts run into action and often times reacting before we think. God has create us to be human and unique in our own ways. We must be careful not to be tempted by wrong things. God provides the good path of life to go down, but we might go astray. The devil is real and wants to trip you up. He doesn't want you to succeed in life or have the power that God offers each of us. No reason to fear because God doesn't give the spirit of fear.
2 Timothy 1:7 New Living Translation (NLT)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
One version of the Bible speaks of God giving us power,love and a sound mind. A mind that trust God and if we trust someone, we know things will be okay. I'm thankful that God knows our hearts and desires of it. It's that freedom of thoughts that can draw us closer to God or far away from him. God has a future for you and me. We wants us to press forward in life, not backwards.
Jeremiah 33:3 New Living Translation (NLT)
Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.
Turning my thoughts to God reminds me of all the great things he has already done. Sometimes we do let feelings or emotions get in the way. The truth is the truth and we are given freedom of thoughts and actions in many cases. Go ahead and surrender your ways to God's way. He will guide you as your seek him and he will put people in your path to walk this life with.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
