I liken my negative thoughts and temper-tantrums indulgences (yesterday’s post) to a big cookies-n-cream shake. It’s so comforting when I drink it, but I feel awful afterwards. And I KNOW it is not good for me, but I drink it anyway. What do you do after you’ve indulged?
The verses in Philippians give us practical ways to take control of our thoughts and make them obedient to Christ.
1. Rejoice in the Lord. (Keep that worship music going!)
2. Pray! (Sometimes all we can pray is the word, “help!” but it is enough.)
3. Think the best of everyone and trust God to have the best for you in all situations.
Which of these three things are the hardest for you when you indulge in “milk shake” thoughts?
Much grace and peace,
