When you find yourself dreading something in the future, put your attention on something positive in the here and now.
As I lie in bed, I find that my mind wants to take me into the future and some terrible thing that will happen then, like cancer, or a stroke, or a heart attack.
I find that this is not helpful and takes away my peace of mind. Jesus cautions us about having anxious thoughts about the morrow.
The reality is that we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, and we only upset ourselves by dwelling on various dire possibilities.
This is a matter of where we put our attention. We can choose to find something positive that is in our life here and now.
