The Hope of Lent - March 29th

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. 

William James

They say that as many as 90,000 thoughts a day pass through our brains! Most of those thoughts are the same ones, over and over. The trouble is, that if the majority of our thoughts are negative, repetition will make them seem like truth.

On the bright side since we have the ability to choose our thoughts we can choose think about positive things.  One thing is for sure: today will not be any better than your thoughts.

When we focus on our thoughts and don’t like what we’re hearing, then  we need to stop, and consciously choose a brighter thought. When we become aware of our thoughts, it becomes easier to train ourselves to think in positive ways that serve us better!

I’m focusing on better thoughts today as the doctors move forward with treatment for my oldest son.  Keeping hopeful and trusting that a cure will be found.  Nothing is impossible for God.


Sometimes you need to choose a better thought.

So true nothing is impossible with God. That is amazing how many thoughts go through our head a day. Positive ones indeed are the best ones to have.

I love to visit your house. I seldom go far without reading a jewel. Today's is worth repeating:

One thing is for sure: today will not be any better than your thoughts.
No ain't that the truth@!

For sure! (What Jack just reiterated.)
Of late, I've been waking 20-30 minutes before the alarm with - what seems like - 89,000 of those 90,000 thoughts spinning around ..... and frankly, scaring me to pieces. Thank goodness, DH is so hard of hearing he can't hear me a), talking to Mr. God, or b| telling Satan in no uncertain terms to GET LOST.

You hit the nail on the head with this one. "One thing is for sure: today will not be any better than your thoughts." So true.
