“Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right.”
“Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable.”
“Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8
The skies are gray and rainy today, as have been many of our days so far this June.
But evidently my roses love the weather.
With my circumstances, with the people in my life, I can either focus on the things I don’t like, or the things I do.
It’s so easy to be critical, to murmur, grumble and complain.
I’ve found that it’s much more life giving to do what this verse says, to fix my mind on the praiseworthy things, the lovely things.
I’ve heard is said, and I believe it’s true, that the way the mind goes is the way the life goes.
I have noticed that the more I make an effort to fix my mind on the blessings I already have,
the more blessed I am.
