I say we continue with the mind topic! We’ve all heard about the power of positive thinking. Well, guess what? It WORKS and guess who thought of it first? He did! That’s right, capital H! “For as he thinks within himself, so he is” (Proverbs 23:7 NAS). Your thoughts are powerful and they can shape not only who you are to yourself, but how others perceive you. As you speak life over yourself, others, and circumstances in your life…you WILL begin to see change! Often, we are willing to accept a prescription from a doctor without even asking many questions. Well, this mind prescription has no negative side effects! In fact, just the act of changing your mindset about yourself, another person, or a seemingly impossible situation brings life. Even if things never change, at the very least, your attitude and perspective will have and that alone brings a peace that makes swallowing the soothing pill of positivity effective and worthwhile.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, 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” (Phillipians 4:8 NIV).
