[Today in Christian radio] Dr. Tony Evans said, “If God is controlling your thinking, then you will feel like God wants you to feel because emotions piggyback off of thoughts.” Worry is an ingrained thought pattern that leads to anxiety and depression. It is mentally exhausting and wreaks havoc on our bodies. We are simply not meant to carry that heavy load. Naturally, rainbows and unicorns do not float into our brains. It is deadlines, bills, responsibilities, etc. We need God to take control. He is our only hope. Dear Lord, We lay down our thoughts, worries, anxiety, and negative thinking on the altar. We give You control of our thoughts for this moment and every moment to come. We praise You that You are happy to bless us with holy and righteous thoughts. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
