sink about such things

Things are out of control the stock market, politics, the weather, morality, the wrinkles, the gray hair, gas prices and the other drivers. 

What are we to do?

We need to control what we can control, and a good place to start is with ourselves.

How's your attitude?  What are you thinking about?  Or as some would say, "sinking about."  Take a look at this video.


Proverbs 23:7 nails it:  As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

In other words, "What we think, we become."

How's your attitude?  Where is your focus?  What are you thinking about?

Here are a couple of suggestions:

Hebrews 12:2-3 (MSG)

Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

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.

When things seems out of control (mayday!), control what you can.

Sink about it.
