What words and thoughts will I use today? Will my thoughts glorify God or will they tear someone down?
As I lay awake for an hour before my alarm went off my thoughts were consumed by work and the frustrations I’m facing. I tried turning my mind to God but would find myself having a heated conversation with one of the executives at work in my mind. Such a waste of sleeping time! Nothing resolved. Nothing gained. And I step out into the day exhausted.
So, now my mind turns to God’s peace and His Word for it is His Word which comforts and guides.
Ps 116:1-2 I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on HI’m as long as I live. (NIV)
