welcome back from
what i hope was
a most wonderful weekend!
Yesterday our pastor said something that has stuck with me,
"If you aren't thinking it, you won't believe it".
This could apply to both positive and negative thoughts.
These past few weeks have been wonderful and busy,
filled with family, friends and fun.
It reminds me to go out there and live live to the fullest.
it's harder to do than it should be sometimes
because distractions and negative thinking and being plain 'ol tired
get in the way,
but i hope that as the month of July approaches
i can remember to do something every day that ministers to others.
"Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny." ~ Frank Outlaw ~
I love the bible also gives similar direction:
"And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings,
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4perseverance, character; and character, hope."
