“Worry divides the mind.” – Max Lucado
Don’t lose minutes, hours, nights and days, worrying about something that may never happen. And even if it does turn out to be something, it probably won’t be near as bad you imagined. Push the negative out of your mind and refill with positive, happy thoughts.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Matthew 6.25
Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5.7
Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34
Do not allow your mind to be as tangled and confused as this tree.
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad. Proverbs 12:25
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27
When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul. Psalm 94:14
Fill your mind with good thoughts. Be busy in your day so as not to allow the negative to sneak into your life.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
Be grateful for this day…rain and all. ♥️
