"The very act of thanking Me releases your mind from its negative focus." (138)
I really believe that a negative focus is one of the enemy's ways of immobilizing us. Keeping our minds "snagged on a difficulty" can paralyze our potential and keep us from fulfilling God's purposes in our lives.
I have battled with worrisome thinking and my best antidote is to turn that same thought into a prayer of thanksgiving for how God will provide, protect and bless...even before I know all the details or outcome. It's how I am learning to walk-out my faith, embrace God-confidence and build strong(er) trust-muscles!
