In the Scriptures, the Lord commands us to watch how we think. This must be an active thinking. Purposeful. For example (all references are from the KJV)
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And take the helmet of salvation...
This "helmet" means we should think about, consider and at times meditate on the salvation that God the Father so freely offers through His eternal Son, Jesus the Messiah. When we do so, the after-effect, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, is like medicine for us:
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh
A short hymn to celebrate this:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Whose mind, whose mind is stayed on thee.*
Thou carest for sparrows aloft to free,**
How much, much more for man’s liberty.^
In perfect peace, his perfect peace
Whose love, whose peace a sound mind brings.^^
Thou sharest thy glory, ‘tis mystery,+
Yet real, how real this balm of belief.++
* Isaiah 26:3; Matthew 22:37
** Matthew 6:26
^ John 8:31; John 8:36
^^ 2 Timothy 1:7
+ John 17:20-26
++ Romans 11:30-33; 1 Timothy 3:9

We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one.
