Tuesday Motivation - What are you holding onto?

Tuesday Motivation 9.15.15 - What are you holding onto?

Well, it may be late, but better late than never! And, is it ever too late for motivation? Here is some Tuesday Motivation for you!

We can't always control our thoughts, but we can control what we hold onto. Some of us naturally think about the worse case scenario first, but the apostle Paul encouraged us to go in the opposite direction.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9 

Thinking on all of this good stuff, is awesome, but the best part is the promise at the end. 

"... and the God of peace will be with you."

So, as you head through this week, try to be mindful of what you are holding onto. And remember, because of the God of peace, you are not alone!

Be encouraged and have a great week!
