Life the last few months has been overwhelming, the political atmosphere has been exhausting, the pandemic news has been upsetting, and the continual unpredictability of life has just worn us out.
When we are worn out, our thoughts tend to spiral.
It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to stop your mind from spiraling out of control, succumbing to worry, or feeling anxious UNLESS you replace those thoughts with something else.
The best “something else” I’ve found is scripture.
I’ve created an easy way for you to retrain your mind to remember God throughout your day. And yes, it takes a little effort to retrain your mind, but the reward is so worth it!
As the holidays approach and #2020 continues forward, let’s use the month of November to intentionally replace our worry and anxiety with God’s Word!

Replace the “old” thoughts with something life-giving and new
When the Bible talks about transforming your mind and setting your mind on heavenly things, scripture memory is one easy way to do this! Instead of just getting mad at yourself for worrying or letting your mind spiral, simply replace those thoughts with the word of God. Plus, this is something the whole family can do together! It just might be your new favorite Thanksgiving tradition.
It’s simple yet POWERFUL!
