Evil Forebodings

Isaiah 30:18
"..................His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship"
Well, I do believe that I'm back on track.  My computer has a new hard drive, and I'm recovering from the surgery. 
There is one issue with which I've been dealing for years ---- allowing negative thoughts to take over.  Now I've 'exposed' that, I'm really exercising making positive thoughts over-ride them, and I've discovered that it's possible to be joyous all the time, in any circumstance. 

I hope that you have a joyous day.  Maggie
Excerpt from Joyce Meyer's 'Battlefield of the Mind':
"What are 'evil forebodings'?
"Shortly after I began to study God's Word, I was combing my hair one morning in the bathroom when I realized that in the atmosphere around me was a vague, threatening feeling that something bad was going to happen.  I became aware that I had actually had that feeling with me most of my life.
"I asked the Lord, 'What is this feeling I always have?'  'Evil forebodings, 'was the word He put into my heart.
"I did not know what that meant, nor had I ever heard of it.  Shortly thereafter, I found the phrase in Proverbs 15:15: 'All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil {by anxious thoughts and forebodings}, but he who has a glad heart has
a continual feast {regardless of circumstances}.'
"I realized at the time that most of my life had been made miserable by evil thoughts and forebodings.  Yes, I had circumstances that were very difficult, but even when I didn't I was still miserable because my thoughts were poisoning my outlook and robbing me of ability to enjoy life and see good days.  Even if nothing bad was happening at the time, I always vaguely sensed that something bad was about to happen.  Because of that I was unable to really enjoy my life.
"For let him who wants to enjoy life an see good days {good -- whether apparent or not} keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit).  1 Peter 3:10
"This verse plainly tells us that enjoying life and seeing good days, and having a positive mind and mouth, are linked together."

    Thank you so much Maggie, for posting this! Even after more than a year from writing it God still uses it. Yesterday I felt just like the article mentioned, anxious and nervous for no reason at all, as if something bad was about to happen. I even prayed to God asking what was that all about. Well, I'm so grateful that He was quick to respond through your post. Thanks again! May God continues to bless you!
