As soon as my mind gets snagged on a difficulty, bring it to God with thanksgiving.

“As soon as my mind gets snagged on a difficulty, bring it to God with thanksgiving.  Then ask God to show me HIS way to handle the situation.  The very act of thanksgiving releases my mind from its negative focus.

Most of the situations that entangle my mind are not today’s concerns;  I have borrowed them from tomorrow.  In this case, I lift the problem out of today and deposit it in the future, where it is veiled from my eyes.  In its place, God gives me His PEACE, which flows freely from His PRESENCE.”  – taken from Sarah Young’s small devotional book, “Jesus Calling”, May 11 entry, pronouns changed.
