I think too much. Can anyone else relate to this? I overthink everything. This creates a problem because it starts to steal my peace. The Lord has really been working with me on this. If my Father has everything under control, why am I over analyzing every detail of every situation? Those people He has removed from from my life, why am I spending time contemplating what I could have done differently? When I’ve been been forgiven for a mistake why do I dwell on why I made it to begin with?
It’s not thinking too much that is bad, it’s thinking too much about things that steal my peace. It’s dwelling on those things that rob my joy. It’s that negative thinking that must change. The Bible tells us in Philippians 4:8 what to think on, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” The Holy Spirit keeps bringing that verse into my spirit. I think one of my bite sized goals for February is going to be centered around Philippians 4:8. I’m going to make it a daily habit to think on “these things” in that Scripture and see what kind of impact it has on my thinking at the end of the month. I challenge you to give it a try as well. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
