This week in The Bridge (our Adult Bible Fellowship at church) I taught from Phil. 4:4-9 about stopping negative thinking, turning worries into prayer requests, thinking instead about positive things, and doing what we know we ought to do from Scripture. Today I'm posting 10 negative thoughts and the Scriptures that correct them. Perhaps you have some to add; I would love to see them in the comments below.

#1 - When you think "no one loves me" God says "I love you so much I sacrificed everything for you." - Rom 5:8

#2 - When you think "I'll never forgive myself" God says "there is no condemnation in Christ, I forgive you." - Rom 8:1; 1 John 1:9

#3 - When you think "I am completely alone" God says "I will never fail you and I will never abandon you." Heb 13:5

#4 - When you think "I just cannot go on" God says "My grace is what you need, My power works through your weakness." - 1 Cor 12:9

#5 - When you think "I'll never be smart enough" God says "ask and I will give you wisdom generously." - James 1:5

#6 - When you think "I just can't do it." God says "You can do all things through me." - Phil 4:13

#7 - When you think "I don't know where to go in life" God says "Trust me with all your heart and I will guide you." - Prov 3:5-6

#8 - When you think "This is impossible!" God says "All things are possible with Me." - Luke 18:27

#9 - When you think "How am I ever going to make ends meet?" God says "I will supply all your NEEDS." - Phil 4:19

#10 - When you think "I'm so worried and frustrated all the time" God says "cast your cares on Me." - 1 Pet 5:7
