Thought Life


Scripture of the Day: "Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."
~ Phillipians 4:8


My, My, My ... How long it has been since I have blogged!!! Life happens... Holidays...Travels... Family... but here I am.

Correct thinking as a Christian is so utterly important. Everything that we allow ourselves to hear, read , see and meditate on will affect our general thought life therefore affecting our daily lives.

I have noticed over many years how important this is to me personally. It may not be the same for everyone, but it holds true for me. If I read wholesome books, surround myself with friends and family that are positive and encouraging, watch very little television (ie news, certain negative film, reality shows) and stick with informative, or christian based programming-- I find myself to be a more positive and happy person. I have noticed this with my oldest daughter as well.

God's Word is true.... If we would just do what He advises us to do in his Word..We can live happier, more productive lives, that will glorify Him!!!

Hi! I found your blog on The Well-Trained Mind blog list.

I so agree with this: "If I read wholesome books, surround myself with friends and family that are positive and encouraging, watch very little television (ie news, certain negative film, reality shows) and stick with informative, or christian based programming" for myself as well. I can definitely sense a difference in my peace/comfort level when I've been exposed to increased levels of more worldly influences.

Thanks for the reminder!
