Negative thoughts are toxic:  I can’t do it. I’m afraid. I’m tired. I don’t have what it takes. I don’t have enough time. I am weak and untrustworthy with my schedule and commitments.

Negative thoughts are lies:  I’m too busy. Time just slips away. I’m not good enough. I’m discouraged. I’m trapped in a jail of despair.

God’s Word teaches that we are not victims of our thoughts—

Psalm 52:8:  But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
