Don’t Rehearse, Rejoice.

Don’t Rehearse, Rejoice.

It’s easy to think on the problems that have happened to us. Have you ever caught yourself daydreaming about something negative someone said about you? It’s as if we replay it in our minds constantly. Just like a T.V., you are going to have to change the channel in your mind. Force yourself to think differently. Make the choice to dwell on the positives that already exist in your life. Don’t wallow in self-pity and rehearse the problem. Instead, reverse the problem and start to think, speak, and act like God is a restorer.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things arenoble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” -Philippians 4:8

Maybe you made a bad financial decision, and it haunts you.
Maybe you are overweight and can’t seem to shake it.
Maybe your grades were not as good as they could’ve been.
Maybe you blew it in your job interview.

At least you had money, and God can restore it. Your body may not look “redeemed” but as a believer, your spirit is, and God will help you drop the weight. So your grades were low, crush the next test and start to climb higher. If you messed up your job interview, well at least you had one!

“Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, The Lord will be a light to me.” -Micah 7:8

You can’t change the past, but you can press on toward a bright future. Don’t rehearse what has happened, but rejoice for what will be done!

Much love,
