Writing today as part of the Five Minute Fridays weekly free-write. Today’s writing prompt is ADJUST.
UPDATE: I originally posted this on March 25, 2020. But the prompt for today seems to fit, so I’m reposting it in the hope of encouraging others to join me. I continue working hard to adjust my thinking. I purpose daily to praise not panic, worship not worry, remain faithful not fearful. Let’s be praise warriors!
The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Psalm 118:14 (NLT)
After watching an hour of news this morning I’ve decided to focus on focusing my prayer life, especially now. Will you join me, friends?
I’ve decided to praise not panic (Psalm 71:14).
I’ve decided to trust God in all circumstances, even those we don’t know yet (Psalm 9:10).
I’ve decided not to anticipate the worst or allow anxiety to well up inside me (2 Timothy 1:7).
I’ve decided, instead, to dwell on these things; whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—I will think about these things (Philippians 4:8).
This is possible only because of Jesus (Phil 4:13). He is my strength (Psalm 118:14) and victor over all things (1 Corinthians 15:57).
Let’s decide to be praise warriors!
How will you express your praise today?
