thinking for a change


Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

Often we allow the things around us to adjust our thinking or change it all together.  The stuff that distracts us are things that keep us from accomplishing what is best and what God has for us.

It is evident that what many people, and what I have done, is turned my mind off to the things that really matter.  We get busy and find ourselves crashing rather than spending time with the people we care about.  We pick up the computer or our phone rather than spending time reading our Bible or praying.

Thinking for a change is something that we need to do more often.  Several of the books I have been reading and even some conversations have reminded me that my focus and my thinking is my choice.

Thinking is a choice just like stopping thinking is also a choice.  Our minds can either be wasted space or a place where creativity and making a difference is actively happening.

Gandhi said, “be the change you wish to see in this world”.  If we don’t change our thinking, we will not bring change to the world and people around us.

Change is a big deal.  Changing what we think about is a simple choice that will make a big difference in us and in the people around us.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
