The more we rehash them…the more we become them.
We need to vent, to talk to process our feelings but if we only focus on circumstances, we won’t see possibilities.
Romans 8 verses come to mind for prayer.
5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Pray God’s Word – the best defense!
