It’s going to come– the distractions will do their best to deter you. The negative Nancy’s will say their piece. Instagram will convince you you’re behind the trend or the timeline.
And so, you have to be ready. You are not helpless when it comes to your thoughts. You don’t get to say that the snowball, lack of focus or pessimistic attitude was anyone else’s fault today.
Why? Because you’re empowered to control what you think about!!! Your Heavenly Father has more than equipped you to discern what is truth and what is trash, the question is, what will you feed?
Our brain naturally caters to our perspective and desires, often using fear as a crutch and deceiving ourselves. Our innate response is to give into emotion and ride the rollercoaster! It requires digging in, seeking Jesus, disciplining yourself and being intentional if you want to change your focus.
Today is going to be a GREAT day, no matter what! Arrest the little minions that plant any other thoughts & get on with your day!
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” -Romans 12:2
