Notes from Charles Stanley:
OPTIMISTIC o EGATIVE? “If I keep thinking these thoughts:
—Where will these thoughts lead me?
—Are these thoughts scripturally acceptable?
—Will these thoughts build me up or tear me down? Don’t say, “I feel weak, old, lost, or down.”
—Could I share these thoughts with somebody?
—Where did these thoughts originate?
—Do I feel guilty about thinking these thoughts?
—Do these thoughts fit who I am as a follower of Jesus Christ?
“Colossians 3:16 “Remember what Christ taught and let His words enrich your lives and make you wise. Teach them to each other and sing them out in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing to the Lord with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus and come with Him into the presence of God the Father to give Him your thanks.”
Your thoughts control your life
