What are you thinking about?
Paul tells us in Philippians:
How much time in our lives is spent thinking of things that are less than this? If you're like most of us, it's a lot of the time. I have had to cut out a number of TV shows lately because their content is just too disturbing. Most of the news falls into that same category. We need to find positive messages for ourselves and our family.
We all, too often, are living stressed out and as a result are at the mercy of stress hormones in our bodies.
Over the long term though, stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline harm the brain.
Oftentimes we can't change the sources of stress in our lives. What we have to do is find a way to change our reaction to those stressors. Once again Paul gives us a guide in the same passage of Philippians:
That sounds pretty good doesn't it?
My prayer is that you would turn to Christ with your troubles and fears and let Him do the heavy lifting for a while.
The world is too heavy to all be on your shoulders.
May the peace of God fill your hearts!
