Ever heard the word worrywart? The dictionary defines it as “a person who tends to worry habitually and often needlessly.” Despite all the good things God has done and is doing for them, they just can’t help but worry, fret and dwell on the negative. If that’s you, then here’s some good news: As a believer, you have the ability and the authority to train your thoughts. You don’t have to focus on negative things just because they’re staring you in the face. You can look past them, around them and over them, and put your focus on God’s Word, and be thankful for His love, goodness and faithfulness in all things. Apostle Paul says in Philippians 4:8, The Message, “I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” Thinking on “the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly,” will help keep you in a place of peace, joy and comfort. You won’t find yourself worrying, fretting or complaining, but instead you’ll experience God’s peace all the time, no matter how rough things appear to be.
