Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8
What a great verse to “Park your Mind”. From the Made to Crave” bible study, “It’s so easy to park our minds in bad spots. To dwell and rehash and wish things were different. But to think on hard things keeps us in hard spots and only serves to deepen our feelings of emotional emptiness. This is where pity parties are held and we all know pity parties demand an abundance of high-calorie delights, eaten and eaten some more. But pity parties are a cruel way to entertain, for they leave behind a deeper emptiness than we started with in the first place.”
The “Made to Crave” study of course deals with the issue of foods. But we can turn to many bad vices during our pity parties. I love this thought of parking your mind. When you are feeling low and begin your pity party, park your mind, pull out from memory your favorite verse or a verse you have written down and “park your mind in a better spot”. The verse above is a great place to park. If anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things, because they were made by our God.
God bless you today.
