Sometimes we hold on to hurt because we replay the pain over and over again in our minds. Sometimes we stress about what might happen in the future. Sometimes we dwell on all the wrong going on in the world.

When you find your thoughts running away on you ask yourselves these questions:

Is it true?

Is it just?

Is it honest?

Is it pure?

Is it lovely?

Is it of good report?

Is it virtuous?

Is it praiseworthy?

If you can’t answer yes to every question then you need to stop thinking on it. Think instead on the things that do hold truth, honesty, justice, purity, loveliness, good report, virtue and praise. Think on Jesus.

Philippians 4:8
