Where do you dwell?

I listened to a podcast recently that has got me thinking.

About what I think about.

But I have read Philippians 4:8 many, many times, and this message brought it to life in a new way. My mind loves to run about haphazardly, and all manner of good and bad things will race through my mind in a given day. I am a little ADD and have a hard time focusing on one thing at a time, so my mind wanders a lot. As I listened to his in-depth talk on each of the areas that God tells us to think about, I wondered what kind of woman I would be if I really thought like this all the time. It's messing with me. I don't have an answer, but I'm very captivated by the idea of capturing my thoughts so they fall into the Philippians 4:8 categories.

Just something to think about. If you're interested, you can read the transcript here or download the podcast here.

Great thoughts! I haven't listened to that one yet. But, I recently read in a book that when we have a thought that is contrary to what the Word says, we should pray and ask God to change our hearts on that matter,... and then we will see that those instances are less and less... there's a few things I should purposely apply that principle to.

I think I need to give that one a re-listen.
