So lately, I've been doing alot of thinking. What you put into your mind in terms of tv you watch, music you listen to, and lies you tell yourself is going to come out. So instead of putting 'crap' in, put good stuff in! For example, instead of listening to down and depressing music, try turning the chanel to a positive, uplifting Christian music channel. See what happens. Instead of watching TV shows that make you want to be of the world, turn off the tv and play a game with your kids.
I've been challenged to stop putting bad stff in my mind. I recently finished a bible study book, Telling yourself the Truth, and you know, its been awesome. Instead of focusing on what isn't true, I have been focusing on truth and its so awesome.
Believe it or not, that stuff will effect you. What you listen to on a daily basis will start to take control of your thought life and eventually will change who you are. But if you are putting the good in, the good will come out. Not overnight I'm sure, but give it a try.
Remember, God loves you and wants you to be a child of His. He wants us to honor him in all we do and say... so this isn't anything new of me.Here is the verse that just came to mind
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Yup, its right there in God's word. Our daily instruction book for our daily lives. How awesome.
Ok, I need to tidy up the house a bit... before I get the kids washed and in bed. Happy reading!
