In most of the chapters I have read in Psalms it says that the Lord hears the cry of the righteous! He will be there to help me, even against myself! 2 Corinthians 10:5 tells me to take every thought captive. In a sense I have to put my thoughts in jail and force them to obey Christ.I have to let the Lord be Lord over my thoughts and my mind. This is a very hard thing to do, especially when you are a worrier! I need to retrain my brain to think differently, like to give praise to the Lord instead of thinking about things that bring me down!
Palms 9:1-2 "I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart: I will recount all of Your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name; O Most High."

Starting out this new year I wanted to start fresh with everything, eating healthier, reading more, getting organized and changing my mindset. The Lord has done many wonderful things in last couple of years, but it has also been some of the hardest years. Life is going by faster and faster and if I don't set my mind in the right place it's going to pass me by. I need a change of attitude and a change of mind if I'm going to push through this next year no matter what comes my way. So I decided that I'm going to start reading though the book of Psalms. One chapter a day, at that rate it will last a good part of the year. The Psalms offer so many wonderful things, encouragement, wisdom, guidance and comfort, just to name a few. Already the Lord has shown me some great things.
Chapter 1, I need to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, so that my roots will run deep. No matter what I go through, I will stand firm.
Chapter 2, I will be blessed when I run to Him for refuge.
Chapter 3, many are the enemies all around me, but He is my shield. He will answer me then I cry out to Him, He will sustain me. Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Chapter 4, He has put more joy in my heart than those who abound. He has set me apart and He will hear me when I call. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for in Him alone I will dwell in safety.
Wow, that's only in the first four days of reading. I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to show me as the days go by. I know it's not going to be easy and I'm sure some days will be harder than others. But with the Lords help I know that I will make it through this year stronger than ever before. Thank you Lord for Your Word and how it transforms lives and hearts.
