105. Your Thoughts Today are Your Results Tomorrow
How can today's thoughts become tomorrows actions? Your thoughts grow when they are not guarded. Author Bobby Schuller stated "your thoughts really are your destination (Devotionals Daily, May 28, 2019). Romans 12:2 stated "Do not confirm to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will."
Despite countless (at least it felt so) conversations, encouragement, validation, listening and caring for George's needs, he continued with counselling bringing forth the same issues repeatedly. He loved to hear the validation. His intentions became clearer as issues remained and even grew worse as the counselling proceeded. Through much prayer and mounting concern for George, I began to realize his willingness to proceed in his path of negative thought patterns allowed his life to be shaped accordingly. The results were evident in his physical demeanor; slumped shoulders, negative attitude intertwined with loud complaints of life permeated his conversations. He was stuck.
Each and every circumstance in your life is affected by your thinking. Negative thoughts bring negative outcomes. Your thoughts today truly are your results for tomorrow. Making adjustments to your thinking brings forth new destinations and results for you. When you choose to make changes in your thoughts; forgive someone, let go of resentment and adopt positive thinking, it brings forth life. Choosing to have a positive approach will make a huge difference in your life! One thought or one step at a time.
How do you change your thoughts? You can choose to change your perspective. It will not happen naturally. What if you chose to change the next irritating frustration before you and changed its picture in your mind? What if the very next issue you faced you actually did for the Lord? This kind of approach is like strength training for your soul.
That's how George remained on board. The changes happened very slowly. Indeed, they did happen. The learning and the patience that grew out of it for him was invaluable.
