Watch your thoughts; they become your words.
Watch your words; they become your actions.
Watch your actions; they become your habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Everything starts with a thought, and then comes a word.
Last night I had one of those quick little thought conversations that often goes unnoticed, but this time I noticed. This year we are moving to our dream home. Oh, gosh, I hope so. Dare to believe. Just say it. Oh, it’ll sound silly. So what?
So, I said to DH: “This year we are moving to our dream home.” He replied, “How do you know that?” And I said, “I just know.”
Of course the doubting thought is there, only to very quickly remind me: You do not know. You’ll feel foolish, if it doesn’t happen.
True enough, I do not know, but I have high hopes. The move to the house of my dreams is on The List, after all.
The thing about thoughts is that they are a choice. Many will present themselves, as they did in that quick, silent inner conversation. The choice is mine. The thoughts which I choose eventually become my life. It is up to me to choose those thoughts that serve me, that nurture and contribute to an abundant and healthy life. It is said that if a farmer is praying for rain, then he had better walk around with an umbrella. If I want something in my life, if I am praying for something, then I had better support that desire with thought and words.
Dear God, today I choose to speak positive words of those things I want to be. I leave the outcome in your hands. Thank You! Amen.
