Thought to share: Stop looking at what is wrong with the situation. Stop looking at the faults and shortcomings of people. I AM not asking you to live in denial, pretending that everything is perfect. I AM asking you not to make the wrong your focus. You can acknowledge the difficulty, pain, frustration, aggravation and disappointment – but don’t stay there. Give the wrong a brief glance, invite ME into that and then turn your attention to ME. Look at what I AM doing. Look at what I have given you. Look at how I have blessed you. Look at the beauty of the person, of your circumstances. It’s all there, if you choose to see it. Where you choose to focus your attention changes everything about where you are.
Philippians 4:6-8 (NLT)  Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  
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.

Thought to share: what are you looking at? Where is your focus? If you give your attention to the negative, you’ll never see the positive. And there is positive in every situation, because I AM in every situation with you. So keep your eyes on ME and I will show you the good in your circumstances. I will draw your eyes to MY hand at work. I will shift your focus and enable you to see the blessings that surround you.

2Corinthians 4:18 (NLT) So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
Psalm 16:8 (NIV) I keep my eyes always on the LordWith Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Thought to share: The world is shouting for your attention. It demands real estate in your mind. Don’t give it an inch. Give ME your attention. Let ME occupy your mind. And I’ll take care of the world.

Philippians 4:8 (NLT) 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.
John 16:33 (NLT) I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
