Think good, speak good, live good.

"Thus says the Lord:
As the rain and the snow come down
from the heavens and do not return till they
have watered the earth,
making it yield seed for the sower 
and food for others to eat,
so is my word that goes forth out from my mouth:
it will not return to me idle, 
but it shall accomplish my will,
the purpose for which it has been sent."
Isaiah 55:10-11

God's Word is creative.
He said, "Let there be light,"
and there was light.
He created everything in this way.

He also gave man a part of His creative power.
In Mark 11;23, Jesus said:
"If you do not doubt in your heart,
but believe what you say will come to pass
You shall have what you say."

So we have to watch our words.
And especially be conscious that no negative words
come out of our mouth.
"We're not going to make it!"
"What dim prospects!"
"It's going to be a miserable day!"

"The good man out of the good treasure
in his heart produces what is good,
The evil man out of the evil storehouse
brings forth that which is evil, 
for out of the abundance of the heart
the mouth speaks."
Luke 6:44-46

So let us fill our heart with good things,
so that we speak good things! 
"...whatsover things are true, 
whatsoever things are honest, 
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report,
if there be any virtue and if there be any praise,
think on these things."
Phil. 4:8

There is so much that is good and wonderful
in the world,
why is it that a lot of times 
we concentrate on the negative?

I've been watching the way my mind thinks.
And I've resolved not to allow 
negative thinking to run away like a mad dog,
but to reign it in, pull its leash.
I've got some ways to go yet,
being a judgmental person,
but I've got time to work on it!
