Think about good stuff today. You know, joyful, calm, peaceful, expectant things.
It’s funny. I couldn’t think of anything in particular to say. I do this in faith but don’t want to say my own ideas. So I thought, I will sit down once more and what came to me was Philippians 4:8,9. I thought, ok, I will encourage people to have good thoughts. When I didn’t know what to put in the subject line, the Lord spoke.
“Consider” He said. So you know I had to look it up cuz whatever He says is gold.
Consider means to “think about carefully – especially with regard to taking some action; to regard in an attentive or kindly way; to gaze on steadily or reflectively; to deliberate, chew over, contemplate, ponder, study, think over, ruminate.
The word comes from Latin “considerare which means tp observe, think about, from com + sider, sidus, a heavenly body.” I think THAT is amazing!
So Jesus gently invites us to mull this word over today and allow heavenly truths to percolate and permeate inside and fill our heads with a beautiful neural network! (Such thoughts lay down differently shaped and even colored proteins in our brains than negative thoughts do.)
Thanks, Lord, You always come through for us.
