A Few Pick Me Ups

Every time circumstances {negative thoughts} press in on you, say, "Speak, Lord," and make time to listen. ~Oswald Chambers

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ~Paul, 2 Corinthians 10

"Doubt{negative thoughts are} is a thief that often makes us fear to tread where we might have won." William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Playwright, Poet, Actor

My soul magnifies the Lord...for He has done great things for me. ~Mary, mother of Jesus, Luke 1

What goes on in your mind is invisible to other people. But I read your thoughts continually, searching for evidence of trust in Me. ~Sarah Young, "Jesus Calling"

{Another one of my favs, Shawn McDonald! All I Need}

Wow, that last quote really challenged me. To the outside I can look like I have all the faith in the world, but it matters not if in my own thoughts I do not honor Him. Thank you for the blessing!

Amen, me too sister!! The Shakspeare quote got me. And Mary's words... she totally could have felt like she started out behind the 8 ball, but instead, she rejoiced! Amazing.
