[I]n God I trust; I will not be afraid.
God can change us, but won’t do it without our consent and cooperation.
Clean out the garbage in the garage; take the negative junk to the dumpster. Purge the closets; get rid of the old duds and put some color in your wardrobe—you’ve been wearing drab long enough.
Let’s write a prayer together. I’ll start. You finish.
Many things in our world—excuse me, Your world—seem to be falling apart. Please grant that our faith may not fail. Help us believe in you unconditionally. When our faith falters, remind us to pray, “When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid” (Ps 56:3–4).
You take it from there . . .
You can’t be absorbed with negative thoughts
and live a positive life.
