Hey, I’m Charisse!
Are you like me? You pray to God, believe in His Word, and can say that you trust God, but after all that praying and surrendering of your concerns, you hop up off your knees, pick up your surrendered baggage and continue to worry or complain again! Well, if that’s you, know that you are not alone.
After teaching a teen bible study, I learned that anxiety, fear, and worry plague our youth in alarming proportions. Stress, worry, doubt, fear, anxiety, hopelessness, and many other feelings we carry are not aligned with God’s Word or His expectation for how we should live. In this Bible study, I thought I would just share my personal worries and how God helped me. But to my surprise, I discovered how anxiety for these girls impacted what should be exciting years for them.
It was then; God revealed to me PURE THOUGHTS! Philippians 4:8 tells us to think of true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy things. Our thinking initiates what feelings will follow. And stress, worry, doubt, fear, anxiety, and hopelessness are contradictory to God’s Word and how we should think.
So, to honor the blessing that God has placed on my heart toward renewed thinking, I have created content explicitly geared for transforming and renewing our minds toward PURE THOUGHTS!
I hope you find this material helpful and thanks for taking this journey with me. Charisse ?
