Fasting Negative Thougts Day 3

Day 3 …

My negative thoughts today were bound up in fear. Fear of what other people think of me, real or just imaginary. Since I’ve been training myself to
push past the negative thoughts and seek another more positive solution, my anxieties have been a lot less. I found myself dwelling on the fear of what others might think of me for just a minute and then pushed it aside. I realized no-one was even doing that and if they were judging me or criticizing me, they are living in their own mire and muck of negativity .. go ahead and reap all you want to.

Also, I found out today that the people I work for are not going to need me as many hours in the next week. My first thought was .. oh great, I have bills to pay … I shouldn’t have bought that item from Amazon. I cDepositphotos_2076652_Lould feel dread and doubt and anxiety coming over me and thoughts of being abandoned by God, thinking to myself, when is God going to take care of me?

Then I just decided to thank him for providing for me next week.
When the people I work for got home today, they decided that they did need me to help out more than they thought …. yay God!

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:26-30‬ ‭

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?”
