When you wake up each day, get out of bed, brush your teeth, make your breakfast… what goes through your mind? What are your first thoughts? Do you think about your to-do list for the day? Do you fear the unknown of what the day holds? Do you think about the pain you feel in your body? How many negative thoughts enter your mind before you even get dressed? I encourage you to think about this and begin shifting your mind to repeat the Word over your life. Search some scriptures that are really speaking to your heart and write them down, print them on paper and hang it up, put it on the background of your phone so it's always at the forefront of your mind when you grab your device. Keep the infallible word of God in front of you throughout the day so you know your grounds and can fight back against the negative thoughts the enemy throws at you.
God's Word is perfect and it's always true! Submit your thoughts to God. Dare to think above the lies of this world and allow His light to shine through you! Take care of your thoughts and your mind and you will be a great vessel for the Kingdom of God. When you submit to the lies of the enemy, you are giving him room in your life. The best way to get back at the enemy is to submit to God and fill your mind with thoughts that line up with the Word. For someone dealing with stress or feeling overwhelmed, reading and reciting Matthew 11:28-30 every day as often as you need, will bring peace and a calmness over you. "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Allow yourself time to clear your mind from the tasks of your day and rest in Him. I assure you it will be a greater day when you put Him first and allow His truths to wash over you like a cool shower after working outside on a hot day. He is the Prince of Peace, He only wants what is best for His children. Knowing you have a loving Heavenly Father can be a great joy if you allow your mind to rest and focus on His love for you. It is better than any pill or counseling session and it's free!
