Lost in thought

posted on: 5.10.2011

Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
How often do we crowd our minds with hopeless thoughts? We waste our time thinking less of ourselves and how we're incapable of achieving. We covet what others have and we point to our flaws constantly. We think negative things that poison our hearts, often speaking them. For how could we speak love when the Word says that 'out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks'? Fill your mind with thoughts of truth! Thoughts of gratefulness. Thoughts that praise the Lord. Don't feed your disappointment, but encourage and affirm others. Think of purity and live it out. We live in a far too ugly and dirty world that desperately needs an example of Christ. Don't focus on what you lack any longer. God still chose you! He knew your weaknesses and your shortcomings. He will deal with that as you change your mindset and focus on Him for He is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent & worthy of praise. Let Him inspire your thoughts and you will surely imitate Him in all His ways.
Authors note: Not a day goes by when someone does not comment on the glow of my smile! Many times I want to scream and tell them that it is not me, but God who takes full credit for it. I am not even at my best when people compliment me. I pray that when people see me, they see God and not a girl with a smile; that when my smile fades, they find themselves with the Everlasting Joy... the Everlasting smile of Christ.
