40,000 thoughts a day is what I have been told we have.
What do you do with them?
Do you dwell on the negative?
Do you nurse and rehearse hurts like a broken record?
Or do you take those thoughts captive?
“…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” Matthew 12.34b
The real war is won within and we have a choice to choose joy.
What will it be for you today?
Need help keeping positive? Then memorize the following and recite it often:
“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things…And the God of peace will be with you.” Excerpts from Philippians 4.8-9
And when you dwell on the above, it will then be easier to overlook offenses and choose joy. Then, others will see you…
Since this was such a short entry, take a few extra moments and go back to this post for more ideas on winning the battle within:
Now go enjoy this Lord’s day – rest, revel in the beauty of creation, and thank God that today you won that battle within and chose joy!
