Pulled in every direction? Here's the answer

This morning I was feeling pulled in every direction. Should I train in this new healing method, or that? Should I focus more on teaching the Word, or building my counseling and coaching business? I read my Bible chapter today, so should I exercise first or go on to my new Bible study that just came in the mail?

Do you know what I mean? There are many good things, but not all are necessary or profitable for right now. (A paraphrase for my own purposes of 1 Corinthians 10:23 of course)

As always happens when I open my Bible - this is what first caught my eye and it directly applied to my need:

Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ. So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,[i]praising him always. Follow the example of all that we have imparted to you and the God of peace will be with you in all things. Philipians 4:6-9

Bam.....God is good.
