What I sometimes remember to do, especially in the car, is turn my praise music on - LOUD - so LOUD that I can't hear my thoughts anymore!
Then, I sing! Off key no doubt! Laugh worthy to anyone listening (smiles) but, its honest and God loves that and when I reach my destination and turn the car off, I have regained a little spring in my step and now God's music is in my head instead of mind-numbing unresolved problems.
|Ok, maybe not SO loud?!|
And you know what? When you mentally let go of stuff, God can start working on it. The longer you mind wrestle, the longer the wait because God gives us free will. He will take your problems - when you give them to Him!
So, my tip for the day - sing those negative thoughts away LOUDLY!
Ex 15 v 21: And Miriam answered them: "sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously, the horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!"
