In a world filled with so many moving parts, it can be extremely challenging to find true focus and peace. Our thoughts can sometimes feel flooded and under constant assault from everyday life. From the time we open our eyes to welcome the new day we are already being bombarded with the thought of the days upcoming events. Before we can even get into our day we are already overwhelmed by it.
In these times we must remember that Christ has given us the authority to take every thought captive (2 Cor 10:4-6 NASB). So as you experience the blessing of a new day, refocus and think on these things:
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. (Phil 4:8-9 NKJV)
You will discover that if you meditate on these things your life will be replete with the things you think on more times than not.
Take care my friends.
