Take Every Thought Captive

Mary and her friend Lexi on Graduation Day

I have had plenty of challenges in the last few year and you probably have to.  The following scripture helps me to keep on keeping on.
Phillippians 4:8 tells us:

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”

Translate this counsel to practical everyday advise by:

  • Choose to give your anxieties to God.
  • Choose to pray specifically.
  • Choose to be thankful.
  • Choose to dwell on the positive.
  • Never allow yourself to complain about anything.
  • Never picture yourself in any other circumstance or someplace else.
  • Never compare your lot with another’s.
  • Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
  • Never dwell on tomorrow – today’s troubles are enough for today.

How are you doing today?  His mercies are new every morning.
