Pastor's Corner

 

“Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.” Proverbs 4:23

Whatever our minds focus on is what will play out in our lives and eventually shape who we are. Our thoughts turn into feelings that have the power to control our lives, gradually steering us and possibly our faith in a direction we do not want to go. King Solomon knew this to be true and counsels us to be careful about what we think and feel. He knew it’s often our thoughts, not our circumstances, which cause us to sink.

Our thoughts have the power to run our lives, controlling our words and actions, feelings and emotions, even our peace and happiness. When disappointment crushes our dreams, when people hurt or anger us, or when problems seem overwhelming, it’s easy to get caught in the rip current of negative thoughts. And when we think negative thoughts, we feel negative feelings, leading us to believe life is negative overall. My Dear Church, embrace His truth that just because circumstances weren’t positive at time, didn’t mean I couldn’t be, just remember, the quality of our thoughts will always determine the quality of our life, God bless you, Happy Sabbath.
