Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
–Philippians 4:8, NLT
How many times a day do we fix our thoughts on such things? I’m GUILTY! I tend to have my mind lean towards thinking of things that are going wrong. Things like, the kids fighting, the schoolwork battle, the never endless to do list. When was the last time I just spent some time thinking of things that are pure, lovey, and admirable? I know with the memorization of this verse I must be intentional about such things. I know that Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I know that he doesn’t want me to reflect upon Gods grace and mercy and love, but I’m going to be intentional about these things. Not only do I propose to you to memorize this verse this week, but I propose you to fix your thoughts on excellent things that are worthy of praise. I’m going to make a list to post in the kitchen about such things. Will you as well?
