“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”
“This saying from Max Lucado shows how powerful our thoughts can be. When we change how we think, it can make our world better and more positive.
Scripture for the day:
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Let’s break it down in simple terms. The Bible says, ‘Without a vision, people perish.’ In other words, having a purpose is essential. If you keep thinking the same old thoughts, you’ll end up with the same old results.
Think about Jesus. Even when His disciples were scared and facing danger, He taught them to stay calm. He showed us that real peace comes from having Jesus, who is the Prince of Peace, reign in our hearts and lives.
Just like how Jesus comforted His disciples during tough times, you can find unshakable peace by inviting Jesus into your life. With Him as your guide, focus your thoughts on good things, positive stuff, noble ideas, and excellence. This way, you invite God’s transformative power through His word to guide your thinking and grace your lifestyle. New thinking presents new opportunities, and these exciting visions, inspired by God's word, bring life to others.
So, here’s a challenge for you today: Change the way you think by taking in and digesting a scripture. It’s like hitting a reset button for your mind. God’s love and kindness are limitless, and your mind can be refreshed too. Spread aloha (love and kindness) to everyone, and you’ll live a more peaceful life. As you find peace within yourself, you’ll create a peaceful world around you, regardless of the storms that come your way, shining with the light of God’s love. Let your thoughts be a source of hope and strength so you can grasp hold of the vision.
