Fix your thoughts // 21-10-22

“Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honourable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [centre your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].” Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ ‭AMP

‬‬Our minds are daily bombarded with bad news, anxiety provoking information, and intrusive thoughts. Our physical eyes, the windows to the soul, are often taking in violent and horrific imagery via the news or even entertainment and reading the negative fuelled language of social media, and it can darken our thinking about ourselves and the world around us! This is why these verses from Philippians are so vital to take notice of and put into practice, in order to safeguard our minds, and steady our hearts. Lord, help me to be careful where I focus my eyes. Show me the beauty that is in this world and show me Your glory! Help me to think about Your promises, Your love, the good things You are doing, that I might experience Your peace, Your hope, and Your joy today. Amen 🙏🏼❤️
