You Choose Your Thoughts

There are so many things in life that you simply can’t control, such as who your parents are, which way the wind blows, how much sand washes up on the beach, what time the sun comes out and a million other things - but there is one thing that you DO have complete control over - and that is your ‘thoughts!’ If a thought pops in your mind - it is because you allowed it. You can think negative or positive, thoughts - it is totally up to you, because you have the power over your mind. If you allow yourself to swim in the pity party pool - you will not only drag yourself down but others as well. If you want a joy - filled day then think about good things. The easiest way to do that is to start by counting your blessings. The things that you think about will completely influence every aspect of your life. Have you ever noticed that people tend to be either ‘negative,” (always thinking about what’s going wrong) or ‘positive,’ (those that dwell on the bright side of life.) The Bible says in Proverbs 4:23, “Be very careful about what you think. Your thoughts run your life.” No one has power over your mind but YOU . . . so choose your thoughts carefully - thinking on all the good things God has done for you - and you’ll experience the abundant life God wants you to have!
