As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again.
To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
~Henry David Thoreau~
Our voluntary thoughts not only reveal what we are,
they predict what we will become.
Whatsoever things are true . . . honest . . . just . . . pure . . .
lovely . . . of good report; if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise, think on these things.
~Phillipias 4:8 (KJV)
Lord, I realize I choose the thoughts that find a home in my mind. I need your faithful reminders of this truth. I don't hide any of my thoughts from You; You know me better than I know myself.
As I think, so I am.
Help my thoughts to reflect the person You want me to be. Amen.
"Think about His love;
think about His goodness.
Think about His grace
that's brought us through."
