An Attitude of Gratitude


Our thoughts are powerful.

We've discussed overcoming negative inner dialogue, fear of failure and dealing with a poverty mentality in the past few months. I was thinking about these topics and realized that they are foundational for our current subject: anxiety.
Our thoughts are powerful. They can conjure up negative words, emotions and feelings or they can create a sense of peace and well-being.
Discovering the basis for anxiety helps us to overcome the debilitating space
that it attempts to trap us into...a deep, dark hole.
The goal of anxiety is to strip us of the God-peace that passes all our understanding that Jesus has given to us. His God-peace. True inner calmness of mind, soul and spirit. Philippians 4:7b
Philippians 4:6 says, "Be anxious for nothing." Live in His God-peace.
Paul and Timothy knew:
"Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled request before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, THEN God's wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ." (Philippians 4:8 The Passion Translation)
Anxiety is a normal emotion. We sense it when we're faced with something new, unusual, overwhelming or scary. It's a precursor to fight, flight or full
paralyzation. When we first begin to feel anxious, we have some decisions to make; to let worry move forward and escalate or to take a step back and assess the situation.
Next, Paul and Timothy share some concrete steps to take to fix our thoughts
on the things that will allow God's peace to take over.
Think on these things:
1. That which is authentic and real.
2. Honorable and admirable.
3. Beautiful and respectful.
4. Pure and holy.
5. Merciful and kind.
Then, it's like they added a that list: "And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising Him always."
Let's put these steps into practice. Are you ready? On your mark! Let's go!
