Poison: blueberries and raspberries
Favourite things: the weekend!
What do you dwell on?
What do you think about when nobody is looking?
If your thoughts were categorized by the library Dewi decimal system, what section would you be placed in?
Fiction? Non-fiction? Horror? Travel? craft? Health? Spiritual?
Our thoughts truly shape our days, yet so often my thoughts wander to lands that are just not helpful.
It’s not as simple as negative or positive thinking for me. I have a plethora of thinking tanks. It’s how detailed I can become and how overwhelmed my emotions can become from the tenure of my mind.
Our focus scripture says this…
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…
Imploring us that this is the final but most important piece of wisdom to combat fear and worry.
Think on these things.
The bible isnt telling us to empty our minds, to clear our minds like many contemporary forms of meditation do.
It instructs us to replace our unhelpful thoughts, with constructive ones.
It is not easy to stop thinking patterns that create road blocks in our purpose journeys but to fill our minds with positive road maps is a whole different story.
When we allow our minds to think about good endeavors, our emotions, worries, anxieties, fears and concerns seem to fade into the background and beauty becomes apparent again.
What is the tone of your thoughts today?
Replace them with a new colour?
Bright, bold, brilliant and beautiful. Sparkling, special, solving, salutations. Excellent, engaging, elevating, encouragements. Truthful, telling, thankful, thoughts.
Replace the old with new. Don’t just try to stop cold turkey, create new patterns.
