Chosen by God!
I am trying to consistently think about what I am thinking about. I have seen the power of my thoughts in dictating my words and actions. They are like gas for a car. You put in the right octane and you get good performance. You put in the wrong octane and it doesn't perform as well, and may even break down. What goes in the car determines how the car will run. I'm taking inventory of my thoughts because I want to "run" right!
I have been meditating a lot on this Scripture:
“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. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:8-9 ESV)
I’m reminded of the power of my thoughts. What I think about will impact the words I speak and the actions I take.
I’ve determined I will think about whatever is:
These are the characteristics that I want to power my thoughts, words, and actions. These are the thoughts that lead to peace.
What we think about is what we will become. We can’t afford to allow idle, unproductive thoughts to take up residence in our heads. We must be intentional about what we are thinking about. The price we pay for indiscriminate and unchecked thoughts is too high!
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7a AMPC)
