“If, when you are faced with trouble, whether it be old or new, you can affirm positively the harmony of being and then refuse to open the case, no matter how much fear may urge you to do so, you have to cast your burdens upon the Lord, and you will win.” Emmet Fox
Many thoughts pass through my mind. They only become mine when I stop them and start a conversation with them. "Resist not Evil", trying to remove old thought patterns when trouble comes gives the trouble power. I go immediately to prayer/thoughts of God. With this treatment, most trouble disappears by itself. If it persists refuse to open the case and persist with the treatment till you are victorious.
