A Penny For Your Thoughts–Are they worth it?

Proverbs 23:7

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

So, what’s on your mind these days?

Do you think more of yourself than you should–less than you should? Are you confident, terrified, sad, hopeless? This verse tells us we have the power to change who we are. We can become confident, successful, happy, full of peace and joy. And yet so many of us fall far short.

This verse is short and simple, but it holds the key to who we are and who we will become. Another way to say the verse is to say–as I think so I will become. This verse may be simple but that doesn’t make it easy to do. Many of us have been told all our lives that we aren’t good enough. That we haven’t got what it takes to be successful. And once we hear those negative thoughts enough, we start to believe them.

And when that happens, life starts to go downhill for us.

Our thoughts control our life. If we think we can do something, that’s way more than half the battle of doing it. If we think we can’t, then chances are we won’t. Just because others tell us we aren’t good enough doesn’t mean we have to believe them. Start seeing yourself as God sees you. God created you for a reason and He believes in you.

Every time a negative thought pops up, replace it with a godly thought. When you think I can’t do that replace it with the thought that WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. When you think that nobody loves you, replace that thought with GOD LOVES ME. The more you do this, the more it will become a habit and the more positive you will become. The more positive you become the more power you will have to change your life with God’s help.

We truly are what we think we are.

So, if you don’t like who you are right now, change your thoughts. So again, I ask what’s on your mind? Are your thoughts worth a penny or a gold mine?
