The mind is a beautiful thing. It is the origin of whatever we say and do. If you are going to mind what you say or what you do, you have to mind what you think about!!
So, Philipians 4:8
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
You are a product of the thoughts you entertain!! For as a man thinketh, so is he.
The most wonderful thing one can realize is that when you have a shepherd, you are safe and you can never be lost.
The Lord is my shepherd, with him i am safe.
He protects me from danger and keeps the enemy away.
The Lord is my shepherd, with him am on the right path.
He guides me in the way to go and because i follow him, i can’t get lost.
The Lord is my shepherd, with him i can’t starve.
He has provided me with the bread of life, and because i drink from the river of life, i never thirst!
The Lord is my Shepherd!! in him i have my confidence…
Sometimes we hold back from our goals and targets because we are too afraid of what others will think or say.
We are so afraid that our success will be too hurtful to those around us. We think to ourselves “let me not do this because i don’t want X to think am showing off.” or “Shh, don’t let anyone know i got an A, they’ll feel bad and not want to be friends with me.”
Well, there comes a time when you need to stop living for others. Like someone once said, “Be yourself, everybody else is taken.” People that feel intimidated or angered by your success shouldn’t be the benchmark for what you do, otherwise, you’ll never get to do anything you really want.
Surround yourself with people who celebrate your success and encourage you to do more. Be free to Win! Free to soar!! Free to conquer!!
Live life big!!! He did give us all things to enjoy, so go ahead, enjoy it!!!
