Thought to share: why do you let the things of the world annoy you? Why do you let the drama of government or workplace politics suck you into its vortex? Why do you allow the behavior of people to push your buttons? Why do you allow society to consume you?Don’t waste your thoughts or energy. Instead, invest your attention in ME. Give ME all of your thoughts and I will help you sort through the barrage of things life is hurling at you. I will give you clarity and show you where to spend your emotions and energy – what to embrace and what to let go of. Together, we will journey into the center of peace and you will know rest.

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT) You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!

Psalm 20:7 (Amp) Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the LORD our God. another way to say this is: some trust in (look to) the government or people to resolve the world’s problems, but we choose to trust in (look to) God because He is the answer. That’s a better way!

Hebrews 12:2 (TPT) We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection.

Matthew 11:28 (TPT) Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.

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: As life swirls around you and rushes past, don’t get sucked into the chaos. Don’t be mesmerized by the details. Don’t try to grasp the frazzled ends and pull it all together. Instead, look at ME. Purposely turn your eyes to MY face and gaze at ME. Grasp MY hand. I’ll take care of the vortex that threatens to pull you under. I’ll sew up the details. And you can just rest in ME.

Micah 7:7 (NLT) As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.
Isaiah 26:3 (Amp) You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!
