Toxic Tuesday: Starve the Toxins

Toxic Tuesday biochem hazard small

Is your problem looking larger than life today? Is your difficult relationship sucking all your energy out of you? Do you think facing your day looks like more than you can handle?

Instead of looking at the day from your point of view; pick up God’s spiritual eye glasses and see it from His point of view.

  1. God is who He says He is.

    (Isaiah 43:1-12) “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,“and my servant whom I have chosen,

    so that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he.
    Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
    I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.
     I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
    I, and not some foreign god among you.
    You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.

  2. Remember God is trustworthy.

    (2 Timothy 2:13) “…if we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself.”

  3. Think about Bible verses related to your specific problem.

    (2 Timothy 3:16-17) “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

  4. Use the power of positive thinking.

    (Philippians 4:8,9) “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

  5. There is power and healing to be found in a grateful heart.

    (Psalm 103) Praise the Lord, my soul;

all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.

He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.

6.  Extinguish negative thoughts.

(2 Corinthians 10:5) “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

7.  Remember the power in you.

(Philippians 4:13) “I can do all this through Christ who gives me strength.”

Take everything to God. Your job is to pray. His job is to work in your life through those prayers.

I hope your day looks a better now!
