My journey in life and some encouragement along the Way.
There is a term out there in sports and many refer to different sports personalities as the GOAT (greatest of all time).
Tom Brady in football, Michael Jordan in basketball and possibly Stan Musial in baseball.
There is only one GOAT, his name is Jesus. He came to earth to save us from our sins. He went to the cross and paid for our sin penalty in full, obeying his Father and died a cruel death. He then arose from the grave and lives today!
None of these sports figures have or will ever accomplish that feat- leaving Jesus the one and only GOAT!
Our lives are formed in many ways initially by how we think! Our thinking leads to our behaviors which leads to our actions. Actions put into play for an extended period of time will result in a life well played or poorly lived.
In the book of Philippians Paul gives us a blueprint of how to think. Chapter 4 verses 8 and 9 say- “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.
What we think about the most is generally most important to us. We will Become what we think about.
In this crazy culture right now it is so easy to get into your own head in the wrong way and have negative thoughts. Paul illustrates we should be thinking about whatever is true, whatever is right, whatever is pure and meditate on those items.
I am reminded that God’s word is full of truth and gives us the best blueprint we could ever ask for how to live our life. Saturating our mind with God’s word renews are thinking and put it on the right track to live a victorious life.
I know that whenever I am not allowing my mind to read and think about God‘s word I can drift toward selfish thoughts and depending on my own human strength. This way of living is so limited and has very little satisfaction.
Living in the truth of God‘s word and spreading the light enjoy to others in her life our encouraging words has got encourages us is the best way to live!
