“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought” (Mildred Norman Ryder).
Not only do our thoughts effect our actions, but also they cause those around us to be either motivated or affected in a negative manner. You may have noticed how being around some people can just suck the joy and life right out of you after only a short while. On the other hand, others elevate your attitude just by being near them.
The apostle Paul gives us this advice in Philippians 4:8 (NIV): “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.”
God, help us to keep our eyes and thoughts on You. Amen.
In GOD We Trust!
