Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.” (Philippians 4:6, The Message)2. Change your actions to change your emotions.Behave like Christ. “Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized,” the apostle Paul says. “Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” (Philippians 4:9, The Message) Choose one of these strategies as your One Thing, and you will win the battle over negative emotions today.
