Learn to control the direction of your thoughts. Thoughts are intensely powerful things. Thoughts have the power to lift up or drag down; the power to energize or deplete; the power to inspire to greater accomplishment or to make things seem impossible.
Will we obey the words of Philippians 4:8?
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Or will we allow thoughts to be hijacked by the negativity that dominates our troubled world.
More time should be spent thinking about blessings and less time fretting about hardships.
