Think on these things

Hurricanes, NFL protests, wildfires, Las Vegas massacre, North Korea missile tests, Harvey Weinstein - the world has had no shortage of bad news while I've been off my website (that's another story). In pondering what to publish for my first article in a while - there was plenty to choose from.

But I choose not to dwell on those things.

Philippians 4:8 tells me to" think on those things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, praiseworthy".

This doesn't mean I ignore the unjust, evil, or tragic circumstances happening around me. It doesn't mean I don't form opinions, work to correct what I can, or downplay the impact they have on our world.

But it does mean my focus is on the good, not the bad, my sights are set on working for a better future, not on vengeance for the past. It means my attitude is one of hope and not of despair. It means my heart embraces love not anger.

I have a choice - I choose light not darkness.

  2. Amen. Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again,     what has been done will be done again;     there is nothing new under the sun. There will always be bad news and good news. Be close to our Lord Jesus for He is our saviour.
  3. Amen!!!
