Power of our thoughts

Power of our thoughts

A new mind.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Rom 12:2 NLT)

Changing thoughts.

I am well versed in the dialogue of womanhood. I over-analyze, I interpret (and misinterpret!) I suppose and I ponder and I think and think and think. What if she said that to mean this? What if he did that because he wanted me to know this? Why, did she do / say that? And all of this amateur pscyho-analyzing leaves me exhausted, suspicious and often negative.

But the promise of Romans 12:2 says to me (and you) that we don’t have to allow our thoughts to rule us. We don’t have to get sucked into negative thinking patterns. We can change this negative behaviour, simply by handing our thoughts over to God. He can change each of us.

Let’s try to rework our thoughts by:

  • Switching from negative self-talk to thankful joy (i.e. Instead of the why, how and what questions we are so fond of – “Thank you Lord for x and x and x”. 
  • Asking God to change your thoughts, to renew your mind and to focus your thinking on His will and purpose for you.
  • Use your mind as a valuable resource. Read, learn, think, create and grow in areas where you experience positive energy and affirmation. Spend more time learning and growing and less time pondering and wondering.

Thanks for sharing my cuppa with me today :)

Infinite possibilities!

I hope you’ll share this cuppa with me – one shot espresso, one part hot chocolate, one part steamed milk, one dash of coconut flavoured syrup and finished with coconut flakes and dusted with hot chocolate. Affectionately known as a Caribbean Mocha! Yumm…..

There go my calorie allowance for the WEEK but it was worth it!

While we share a cuppa, here’s my wish for you and every woman today:

May today there be peace within.

May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us!

Blessings and love to you and yours. See you Monday.
