Change the Station

We are what we think.  We've heard it.  We bought the tapes.   We went to the workshop.  We got the t-shirt.  Right?  Yea. Our thoughts become things.  In fact, every thing that has ever been created, started with a thought.  That's easy to understand, right?  It's simple.  It's easy, peasy.  Yet, why do so many of us struggle with this very thing on a day to day basis?  We fill our heads with anxious thoughts.  We worry.  We spend our time thinking of tomorrow and what burdens it will bring.  The catch 22 is, that what we think about, comes about.  What we fill our minds and hearts with, we speak.  And what we speak, we attract.  Luke 6:45 says it best:

"A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

Let us speak love today.  Speak kindness.  Speak encouragement.  Speak patience.  Speak joy.  Speak peace.  For if we speak them, it means our mind is filled with them.  And if that's the case,  it is what we will reap in our own life.  We have to give it away before it can be given back to us.  Let's speak intentionally today.  Let's make it a habit. If we have to,  let's change the station.
