Hard Pressed - Today's Christian Videos
1 Thessalonians 5 :18 - Recently, I misplaced a small paperback book. After I realized it was missing, I looked everywhere that I knew to find it; however, after a prolonged search, it was still missing. My wife kept telling me that it must be somewhere in the bookcase, so I decided to reorganized it. I finally found my paperback book wadded up beneath a stack of heavy hardback books on a lower shelf.
After I picked it up, I attempted to straighten out its pages, but they were still wrinkled. As I thought about what to do, I decided to put it BACK under a book stack, but this time my paperback book was placed in the RIGHT position. Now, the weight was being used to flatten out its pages instead. The same weight that was once destroying the paperback book was now being used to repair it. What made the difference? It was book's position (wadded verses flat) under the stack.
Did you know that your thoughts could become wadded under your problems? If this happens to you, your problems are not the REAL problem, but your thoughts about them are. Thoughts become wadded and twisted when we use them to do what they were not designed to do. They were designed to solve problems instead of becoming wadded and entangled under them. If you find yourself thinking upon problems instead of solutions, you are thinking irrationally. The best way to solve our problems is to change our thoughts about them. You know that you are thinking rationally when you determine how your problems are working out for your favor.
You can straighten out your thoughts by maintaining an attitude of joy. When we keep our joy during difficult circumstances, it rewrites and straightens out that wadded and entangled mindset. Remember to keep those thoughts straight and to have a joyful mindset!
Thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live. Paul, the Apostle. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (MSG)
