This morning as I was thinking about labels, I was reminded that so many times I just accept without question what these thoughts conjure up. These can be the behavior of a two-year old or a teen-ager; a certain occupation or political party; or even a religious sect. If one is not careful, it is so very easy to agree with the world’s thought about everything. Two of my favorite verses are Proverbs 3:5-6 which states “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Today I will watch my thinking when it just seems to go into “auto” mode and will question those thoughts that do not come from God. If it is not creative, loving and blessing all, they come from world thought which are not mine. Our weather has seemed extremely hot and so many are complaining about it and if I am not careful, I notice my energy is limited. The need is there to refute those thoughts and replace them with gratitude on the many blessings we have. Where is our focus?
