Today's Good News: “You Can Control Your Thoughts”

Updated: May 19, 2023

March 2023 |

The thoughts of your mind are very powerful. They can either help you achieve your greatest dreams, or they can defeat you, depress you, and hold you back.

Too many of your thoughts are rehearsing setbacks of your past—even hurtful childhood experiences stored in your memory that block you from accomplishing your life purpose. With so much negativity in your mind, how do you control your thoughts, so they help you succeed?

God’s word in Philippians 4:8 says, “whatever is good, excellent, lovely, and worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Whenever negative thoughts pop up, immediately think of whatever is good about your life to block negative thoughts. Practice speaking positive words and avoid negative self-talk. Surround yourself with positive people, music, and media, and give thanks during the day for all God has done for you. You have the power to control your thoughts.

That's today's good news!
