Organizing the Inside – Day 69 Let This Mind Be in You…

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.  ~ Philippians 4:8

Your mental state affects your overall well-being.
When you worry or are fearful and fretful, your body responds with stress headaches, tensed muscles and aches and pains.  Learn to take control of your thoughts and you will feel healthier. It is a trick of the devil to try to keep you off-balance with worry that’s paralyzing and keeps you from moving forward.

You can have the mind of Christ.
Having negative thoughts is not uncommon to women, it happens to be the price we pay for living in an imperfect world. Negative thoughts don’t have to dominate your mind. Pay attention to the kind of thoughts you are having. Often those thoughts aren’t reasonable nor do they reflect the truth about the matter. Are the negative thoughts you’re having contrary to the Word of God?  If your thoughts don’t line up with the Word of God you should let them go.

You are more than a conqueror.
You can’t concentrate on more than one thing at a time and putting your focus in the right place will help you deal with the problem of negative thoughts. Meditating on the Psalms and speaking scriptures will keep your mind filled with positive thoughts. Consider how God’s faithfulness endures forever. Think about past victories you have had with God. Recalling positive experiences will inspire and allow you to simplify your life by having a victorious thought life.
