When you hear the old saying "Out with the old in with the new" what do you think? Attitude and train of thoughts? This saying came to mind after emailing a friend. He didn't come right out and say I need to toss out my way of thinking and start with a new attitude but that is what I read between the lines.
You see I'm nervous about needles and tomorrow I will be having blood work done. I have been focusing on the doom and been reading some stories on health blogs. He reminded me they are just complaining. (Hit me on the head) I am complaining! God doesn't want me doing that. I need to toss out that it is now my old way.
So now I will bring the new. I will focus on the the peace and only dwell on positive thoughts.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I knew this but I wasn't focus this way. I know when I'm having a difficult day to put praise music on and my spirit will change to over flow with peace and joy.
Thanks friend for the hit on the head. It wasn't to painful.
