When we are dealing with troubling times we allow it to influence our minds. Influencing us with fears, doubts and anxieties even though we know that God is the one in control.
The key is to make the intentional effort of focusing our minds on the truths of God's word. By doing this, we allow our minds to relax at the most critical times. Having peace and confidence even in the middle of great difficulty. We must TRUST in the Lord and know that his intentions are nothing short of the best for us. It's a lifetime practice that we will never grow out of especially if we choose to be people of great faith.
