Taking Control Of Your Thoughts


The mind holds your thoughts. So what are you thinking about?
In everyday life there seems to be a thousand thoughts that come across our minds.

These thoughts vary according to what we are experiencing in our lives at the time, what we have experienced in our lives in the past, or thoughts for the future. Some of these thoughts may be positive while others may be very negative.

If we would like to change from negative thinking, then we must remove negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts in our minds. If you don't replace your thoughts they will only resurface.

  • Now, the big question. What should we be thinking about?
Believe it or not, (or you could just look it up in my search) our creator has told us what we should be thinking about in the word of God. See yourself as God sees you.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 (KJ version)

Thanks be to our creator for telling us what to think about.

Let Your Light Shine Before Men

All of us know someone that can just light up a room with their mere presence. They are usually smiling, happy, cheerful, and glowing. You feel as if they do not have a care in the world.

Sometimes we expect other people to bring joy into our lives, but we are not bringing joy into the lives of others. When your mind is being renewed others can tell because the work done on the inside begins to show on the outside. This is referred to as a shining light. As your thoughts change, you begin to change your way of doing things.

When others see that you are changed from your old ways, then they will want to know your secret. How do you maintain happiness in the midst of a storm? This is now your oportunity to let them know that God loves them and they too can be a part of the family of God.

If your light is not shining, and you are struggling, and you are not renewing your mind, then no one is going to want what you have.

You see, THE WORD doesn't change. And we are changed by the renewing of our mind. Renew your mind and let your light shine.

  • Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16

Change Your Mind - Change Your Life

You are in control of your mind. And if you are not, you need to take control of it. The mind can be very tricky. The decisions we make are based on our minds. These decisions are based on our thoughts. The mind is separate from the brain, because the brain can be repaired by hands and the mind cannot. The mind is influenced by many different things. Some people try to control or manipulate the minds of others. This is where you have to take control and decide who and what you will allow to enter your mind.

Fear in the mind

  • Fear is a negative spirit that can enter the mind, if you allow it.

  • Selfishness

  • Jealousy

  • Hatred

And a variety of other diseases. Know that GOD has not given us a spirit of fear; but of POWER, and of LOVE, and of A SOUND MIND. 2 Timothy 1:7

The power is in all of us to accept what we want to accept, and reject what we want to reject. If help is needed for the mind then the mind becomes altered or controlled. Make sure that whatever enters your mind is positive for it's development. And be ye not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God. ROMANS 12:2.

So, take control of your mind and change anything you want about your life.

Understanding The Mysteries of the Bible

When it comes to understanding the bible you'll find people who will tell you they don't understand it। There are others who will say they do understand it, who often don't. And there are those of us who understand some of it, and learn more each time we read it. The bible is a book that has been in just about every household in America. Bibles are in every hospital that I have ever been in. They have also been in every hotel Ive ever visited. Every American has had an opportunity to access this book.

While speaking with people who don't read the bible, but do believe it, (some of them even daily readers of other books) I feel that they have been mislead about its contents and find the bible boring. If more people would take just 15 minutes per day to read something out of it, they would realize that the bible is the most interesting book there is, they won't be able to get enough of it. They beome hungry and thirsty for righteousness. One thing that is certain is the more you read, the more you're changed. No matter what type of books you enjoy reading, none can compare to this MASTERPIECE!

  • To me, the bible speaks of life and of death, freedom and slavery, war and peace, good and evil, building and destroying, love and hate. The bible talks about parents, children, animals, trees, oceans, stars and everything concerning the issues of life. It is our book of instructions. There are many other names used in reference to the bible. Some of them you may have already heard, but here are just a few.
  1. The good book
  2. The book of truth
  3. The living word
  4. The traveler's map
  5. The book of instruction
  6. The world history book
  7. The book of good and evil
  • The bible is also translated into many different languages and has an assortment of styles.
  • There is a verse in the bible that has been translated into over 1000 languages. It tells of the one who loves us with an undying love. The verse is JOHN 3:16.

While walking, at a carnival, my daughters were each given a bible. I opened one up and the inside of the bible read: " The bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the travelers' map, the pilgrims' staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the christians charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our good the design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents."

As we continue to read, we grow closer to understanding the mysteries of the bible. Read it and Understand!
