Daily Reading

I am now on day 12 of my daily Psalms reading. So far I have been very blessed. If there is one thing I have learned from the past 12 days it is that the Lord is my refuge. When I am in times of trouble or fear I can run to Him for protection. I don't need to be afraid of anything, what can man do to me? NOTHING!

Now the real question is what can I do to myself? Alot! My mind can be a dangerous place if I let my thoughts run wild. All kinds of fear, wondering, worrying and doubt can take over.

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."

P.s. Click on the fish tank to feed the fish!! :-)
