We need to keep our minds focused on the things of God. Anything that encourages us to be loving, peaceful, just, patient, and pure, is of God. When we focus on these things, instead of the discouraging messages the world produces, we will produce them in our actions during our daily lives.
And we pray:
Dear God, there are so many messages that fly around in this world, and many of them aren’t very encouraging. Lord, I thank you that I can focus on you and everything about you, because that is what keeps me sane and at rest. May my actions always be of you, Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
