Duped by World Thought

While thinking about joy and beauty, I am reminded of the hundreds of advertisements and commercials showing happy people who take certain medicines or even the perfect-looking couples who have invested correctly and are enjoying their life fully, or joyous-looking families eating the right foods at a meal!  We are bombarded with these images constantly.  Often, we want to compare our life with those pictures and when they just don’t compare, we think we have failed.  How very ridiculous is that kind of thinking, but we all do it from time to time; some more than others.

John 10:10 reads “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”  Those advertisements and commercials are the thieves that come to mesmerize and hypnotize us into thinking we need what they are selling.  Not true.  Our prosperity, beauty and joy come from within and only from Godlike thinking.  Today I will be alert to what I am thinking!  I will choose joy that cannot be taken from me.



Waking Up

Recently someone was talking about the movie “Groundhog Day” where each day was repeated over and over until he woke up.  The same goes for us when we are focused on lack of Good whether it be financial, relationship, Health or whatever.  We soon become mesmerized and are unable to see Good anywhere.  That is when we wake up to this dream and replace the lack with our gratitude of all the Good in our lives!

Luke 12:25-26 reads “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”  Worrying about anything hypnotizes us!  Once again, our focus is always our choice.
