Shake It

    'Staying quiet doesn't mean I have nothing to say, it means I don't think you're ready to hear my thoughts.'  Who's with me on this one?
     Oh my goodness, I sometimes think my mind has a mind of it's own.  It's either on non-stop mode, critical mode, repeat it mode or daydream mode when I wish I could shake it all out.  They say sin always starts in the mind and I believe that to be true.  The devil can only tempt us but we make the choice to act on it.  'Thou shalt not murder' includes not only the physical act but also your hateful thoughts.
    Philippians 4:8  ''Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.''
    'Defeat bad thoughts by replacing them with something better.'  Yes, subtract the negative and add the positive.
