With all of the differing opinions and perspectives coming at us from every direction, it’s great to know that there’s something we can truly count on, and that’s that God loves us and created us in his image with the ability to think.
You’ve heard of, “self fulfilling prophesy?” Wikipedia defines it this way, “A self-fulfilling prophecy is the sociopsychological phenomenon of someone “predicting” or expecting something, and this “prediction” or expectation coming true simply because the person believes it will and the person’s resulting behaviors align to fulfill the belief.”
I believe God made us this way and we normally associate this phenomenon with wrong thinking, but it’s also true for right thinking – thinking about the right things (see Philippians 4:8).
Do you agree that our thoughts shape our actions, our actions shape our habits and our habits shape our future? If you agree with this, you’ll also agree that God has given us a tremendous gift! By choosing our thoughts, we can have a huge impact on our future!
Let’s embrace this power and freedom by surrendering to Christ and going for the ultimate life of fulfillment followed by the ultimate paradise in the life beyond (next phase of our eternity with him).
We can partner with God to align our top priorities with his loving commands and focus our thinking.
This allows us to gain the clarity, confidence and courage to put the unique interests and abilities that God has provided each one of us to use for his glory. Then we’ll be doing and becoming all that he is equipping us to do and become.

Let’s shine bright!
