Are You Growing Weeds?

1161347_69352244Are problems overwhelming you? At times most people have felt burdened down with the problems or trials they were facing.When feeling this way, it’s far to easy to think on the negative side of things. Hopelessness can set in, which leads you to feel that nothing will ever get better. When hopelessness sets in you stop moving towards positive change and growth. It isn’t long before despair enters and then you are really in a bad place emotionally. When feeling like this, because of the negative mind-set you’re in, it’s hard to sense God’s presence. God is love, truth, light and peace. All of God’s attributes are positive and hopeful, and stand in opposition to negative feelings, such as hopelessness, despair, fear and worry. When you let the negative side of things take root in your mind you drown out the voice of the Holy Spirit. You mistakenly feel that God has left you, but He hasn’t. If you’re in right relationship with Him, you can be assured that He hasn’t left. The problem is, that you have let the cares this world choke out the word God has spoken to you. The word that promises to give you a hope and a future. The cares of this world have grown like weeds in the garden of your mind, so much so that the negative thoughts you’ve been thinking have overtaken the positive thoughts and God’s promises.1390045_49605298 Focusing on God’s promises and trusting that He means what He says will grow a lush green fertile garden in your mind. With a focus on God’s word you can experience hope, love and peace once again in your thought garden. To keep your garden free from the negative weeds growing up you need to weed daily.You may not like yard work, but it will keep your from being over run with nasty negative thought weeds and that is something I’m sure you’ll like.

  1. This is so good! I was actually thinking about the same exact thing this week, how worry about our life and the problems we face makes us start to doubt God and His promises for our lives. It’s so important to focus on Him instead of those issues that can overwhelm us. Once we do His peace will set in and we can face the day confidently knowing that He will take care of us! πŸ™‚
