We’ve considered before what the Bible says about our thoughts. We talked about how we are in control of our thought life. We may not be in control of whatever pops into our head, but we are in control of what we do with that thought. We can dismiss it, consider it and maybe even speak it. And what we speak to ourselves, about ourselves, become our daily affirmations. I’m going to show you where you can find some great positive affirmations.
One of the unexpected joys of the internet is the opportunity for online Bible study. Some of us live outside of town, have 5 little soccer players who each have their own team because I guess it wouldn’t be right to have a six year old playing against a fourteen year old. Some of are introverts (Hi There) and yet God plopped us in the middle of bustling house full of children and by the end of the day, the thought of more conversation makes us want to curl up in our closet. And sometimes, it’s just that kind of season in life, where you want some community, but on your own terms. An online Bible study is perfect for that season.
Did you know I’m taking part in a 31 Days writing Group? I am and I picked reading and writing about the book of Sirach; my own personal online Bible study…shared with you.
Maybe around five years ago when I was really struggling with my mind, I came across this verse found in Sirach 30:21-23
So what does the Bible say about our thoughts? Does the Bible even care about what we are thinking about? Do we even care? We should.
