“You keep him in perfect peace him whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” (Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV)
What we long for. What we search for. Fix your mind, your thoughts, your emotions on Christ. Believe Him. Read His Word and choose to believe it, even when the running dialog in your head speaks differently.
“When Christ is my hope, he becomes the one thing in which I have confidence. I act on his wisdom and bank on his grace. I trust his promises and I rely on his presence. And I pursue all the good things that he has promised me simply because I trust him. So, I am not manipulating, controlling, or threatening my way through life to get what I want, because I have found what I want in Christ. He is my hope.”
