I know there is so much going on in the world today. Matter of fact, so much is happening all around you. Makes the mind distracted. Your thoughts are all over the place. You do not know if you are coming or going some days.
Actually, I do not know about you, I will talk about me. I find myself often analyzing the happenings around me. I even go into" day thoughts", that is the name I gave them. The thoughts can be really crazy too.
It is in that moment, I change my thinking. I begin to recite scriptures. Whatever scripture that comes to mind. I do not care if it is, "Jesus wept", it is still the word. I try to remember the scripture to think on good, pure, lovely... It helps to clear my mind, get my mind right, then I can focus on God.
You want to protect your mind. It is the place often attacked by the enemy. Somebody wrote a bestseller about the battlefield of the mind. When the "day thoughts", "night thoughts", or any other thoughts try to distract you, speak life.
Philippians 4:8, Romans 12:2
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
