As I do an inventory of my thoughts, I ask myself “Am I entertaining fake news? Negative forecasts? Dire predictions of lack?” That can be easy to do if I am not careful. That is certainly not asking for a “Pollyanna” approach to life which indicates fantasy, but understanding that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Good! 2 Corinthians 3:17 states, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
Watching my thinking; refuting the negative and replacing it with gratitude and humility of everything, joy soon re-appears! Today, I choose Joy!
