Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praise worthy- think about such things.
Take a moment and read this scripture (Philippians 4:8) and really meditate on it. I am striving to train my brain when all those negative thoughts come in to replace it with something positive. I am working on becoming a stronger person in my faith, and having positive thinking can really help.
When I don’t feel good enough, or pretty enough, I am reminded that God loves me for who I am and the way I look. So when I start comparing, judging, and becoming consumed by these thoughts, I know it is Satan. You can bet your bottom dollar I am not going to let Satan rule my life. In return I think of something true!!
Anyone who trust in him will never be put to shame – Roamans 10:11.
That scripture right there really helps. I know God loves me and wants me to be filled with Joy and Happiness each day. I will trust in his word, and think of the good in my life. So, don’t allow yourself to think about the bad in life, try and focus on the good. If you think their is no good, then look around you! Go outside and look up in the sky, see the beautiful clouds, hear the birds chirping, the leaves on the tree’s changing colors. Their is so many things to be thankful for!
We live in a world full of chaos and craziness, but take a moment and truly think about all the good that is surrounding us!! Know that no matter what this is a temporary home, and soon we will be in our eternal life in Heaven! The struggles we face right now are temporary and if we trust and put our eyes on God he will make life a bit easier to face!! He will give you the strength and the positive thoughts needed to get through each day, all we have to do is ask!
