10,000 Thoughts To Filter

So my goal is to post a blogotional every other week.  I was thinking that during the down week If I have something interesting that I am reading or that I stumble across I could post it here and share.  Today I was reading from  “Loving God with All Your Mind”  and this really struck me.  I am now trying to memorize Philippians 4:8-9.  If you see me don’t test me :)

“It’s been estimated that 10,000 thoughts pass through the human mind in one day.  Obeying God’s command to filter our thoughts through His grid  of true and real is no easy task.  But, thanks be to God, He helps us to accomplish whatever He asks us to do!”  – Elizabeth George “Loving God with All Your Mind”

Philippians 4: 8-9 NKJV
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.  The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

    Geri, That is one of my favorite books, what a great book to point our thoughts back to our Lord. What a blessing it is to call you friend. :)

    Geri, Thank you for shareing with us. These verves are part of my favorites. I have them on my cork board at work as a reminder. Well, all I have up are the words “WHATEVER….Phil” and it becomes a great witnessing & conversation tool when people come in or sits in my office and asks me “Who’s Phil?”. :)
