What's On Your Mind?

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.
~A.W. Tozer~

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."
~Don Moen~

How true! Our thoughts are who we really are. That is one of my favorite scriptures! I believe if we think on all of the positive things, our lives will reflect them. Hope you have a blessed day!

A lovely picture. I like pictures of paths because anything could be at the end. Love your quote by Tozer and your prayer.

Reminds me of another Scripture: "As a man thinketh in His heart, so is he." But I can't remember the reference. :(
