...do not fret—it leads only to evil. ~ Psalm 37:8
I was quite peaceful until checking my faculty e-mail an hour or so ago. Finals week is apparently causing stress, and it is catching. Thankfully, the still, small voice of God reminds me, "the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace," (Romans 8:6).
Reflecting on Romans 8:6, it stands to reason: if my mind is in a state qualified by any descriptives other than life and peace, it must not be controlled by God's Spirit.
I am rejecting this stress today, choosing instead to trust God. Please Jesus, forgive my fretting. Fill me with your Spirit, and take control of my mind. I choose peace, today.
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. ~ Isaiah 26:3, NKJV
