Worry, Anxiety, Agitation, Frustration

The news bugs me.

There are many voices in this world all fighting to be heard.

Most of the time the things I see or hear on TV or the internet,

give me a stomach ache.

Yesterday I heard a strategy to calm my agitation, from a church sermon.

It is called “ponder-izing.”

This is how it works:

Find a scripture, not a nice uplifting thought, but an actual real scripture from Holy Books you believe in.

Write or print it out

and place it somewhere where you can read it

and ponder it

several times a day.

Allow this thought to drift in and out of your mind

as the voices of the world

or the stresses of your life

stir up worry and fears.

Holy words are there to give us peace and comfort.

I trust this thought!

Start today,

and ponder your picked thought

for this whole week.

See if it works.

The news may still give me stomach aches,

but at least

I am anchoring my mind

to whats most important in my beliefs

and allow my mind to “Park”  or drift

to my own scripture thoughts. 

Share this strategy with someone who gets stomach aches from the news, too.

I am sharing my scripture choice with you….
