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.
Our minds are so powerful. This scripture from Philippians in the bible implores us to fill our minds with thoughts that are good.
How often are we drawn to the negative though?
How often do we think about the worst case scenario rather than the best?
How often do we worry and think about all the things that could go wrong, rather than what could go right?
Positive thinking is not just a self help, new age trend, it has been around for thousands of years.
The differences between new age thinking and that of the bible however, is that new ageism implores us to empty our minds however scripture tells us to fill our minds with goodness.
Think on loveliness.
Think on what has gone right in your life rather than what is about to go wrong.
The reason why emptying our minds doesn’t work is because our minds are more powerful than any computer ever made.
To override the system operating our brains, we need to fight the original programming with new and more powerful content.
Ever tried to stop thinking about something?
Ever felt so overwhelmed at the strength of your mind?
It is impossible to think about nothing, if you are thinking about nothing you are still thinking about something.
So why not reprogram?
Reprogram with pure, noble, good, inspiring, commanding, helpful, loving, decent, brilliant, encouraging thoughts.
Empty your mind?
The stability and strength of your mind will always alter what you creatively produce from it.
Be mindful this spring.

This is just what I needed to read. I’m laying in bed trying to go to sleep because I have to be up at 5:30am to take my little princess to PMH to have a MRI on her head. All the what if’s started running through my head. Instead I will now thank God for my healthy & happy princess and sleep soundly knowing everything will be fine. <3
Sorry it took so long to reply. Sometimes a break from social media makes you realise how much you miss that is happening in other places. I struggle so much with this, but philippians has been an amazing chapter to help me in my everyday.
See you when I get back
