What is filling your mind? // 30-03-22

“In conclusion, my friends, fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honourable. Put into practice what you learned and received from me, both from my words and from my actions. And the God who gives us peace will be with you.” Philippians‬ ‭4:8-9‬ ‭GNT‬‬

It’s good to be reminded that we have a choice what we think about, what we fix our thoughts on. It’s a choice what we watch on tv, what online sites we visit, what books we read, what social media we engage with, what conversations we have, what music we listen to, recognising that all of it will be influencing our belief systems, attitudes, emotions, mental health, and decisions about how/what we speak and act. It all starts in the mind! If we are going to be Kingdom people then we need to fill our minds with spiritually healthy things: with the word of God, with His promises, with things that will grow us in relationship and fuel our faith. Lord, help me to choose wisely today, to be careful what I allow into my mind. May Your peace guard my heart and mind as I live in You, with You, close to You. Amen 🙏🏼
