Welcome to April! The weather is warming up. Daylight is lasting longer. People are taking vacations again. After 2 years of Covid 19, this is an exciting time for so many. It is also a time when many are experiencing anxiety. So here are our 2 scriptures about our minds to memorize this month.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
When negative thoughts or experiences happen, it's important to know how to deal with it. Calling on the Lord is a priority to keeping our minds safe. Prayer provides protection for our mental state.
Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.
This verse reminds us what we should focus our minds on- things that are true, noble, right, pure, admirable, etc. That means that everything doesn't deserve our attention.
If there is something that consumes your thoughts that is untrue, dishonorable, or full of shame, pray and ask God to help you focus on or think on things that are worthy of your mind- things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable.
