And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
~ Philippians 4:8 [NLT]
Our culture is obsessed with bad news, worst-case-scenarios, and knows that fear sells. God knows that when our minds are continuously inundated with stories of evil and harm we suffer. The Bible gives us practical advice on how to guard against anxiety. We are instructed to fix our thoughts on what is lovely, praiseworthy, right, pure, and true. Make a list of things you are thankful for, things that you can give God praise for, and take time to read his true word. These simple steps are a powerful help in giving you peace of mind.
