Feed Yourself with Positive Mental Nutrition
I'm reading through my last year's journal and came across this entry today from The 4:8 Principle by Tommy Thomas and thought it was worth posting.
Habit#1: You attract into your life the people, ideas and circumstances that correspond with your habitual thinking. And three years from now, your family life, health, relationships and finances will reflect what you have been feeding yourself. You become what you think most about.
Habit#2:Start the Day with Joy
15 minutes each morning = 7.5 hours in the first 30 days alone!
If you say I don't have time for a quiet time with God, ask yourself "What could I possibly do with that time that would bring me any greater benefit?" Minutes invested in praying for wisdom will save days spent in overcoming mistakes. To advance in joy, first retreat with God.
Habit#3: Seal the Day with Joy
What gets impressed in your heart gets expressed in your circumstances. What do you think about or read or watch on TV right before you go to sleep?
