The Power of Your Thoughts

    The day begins with you stubbing your toe on a book that you had intended to start reading the night before, but never quite got to it. As you lean down to examine the damage, you spill your coffee down the front of your shirt. Now your thinking: CRAP! It's going to be one of 'these' days!? now stop. Right now, you are starting your thought pattern for the day. How much do you believe it is going to be one of these days? Well at the rate your going....you probably KNOW that it is going to be one of those days, the kind filled with disaster. You look at the clock. OH NO!! Now your running late. So you quickly change your top and head for the door. You feel like your forgetting something but you don't have time to stop and think, you have to go. You get into your car, and the gas light comes on. Great now you have to stop for gas and your already late! You happen to make EVERY red light on the way to get gas and when you pull into the closest station, a sign reads: "Pumps are closed due to maintenance." REALLY?! What did you do to deserve this kind of day?! Well friend, let me tell you a secret. Your day was not out to get you. You were. Let's rewind back to the beginning of your day. You stubbed your toe, on a book that you had REALLY wanted to start last night but never found the time to. Maybe you were mad at yourself for putting it off. Now as soon as that happened you became frustrated at the book. That frustration creates an energy that then goes out into the universe to help you create more of what you want. It does Not know that you don't actually want frustration. All the universe knows is that is what you are putting out, therefore that is what it will give back! Now you spill your coffee, and that feeling of frustration that you had has DOUBLED and you KNOW that you are just going to have one of those days. Right here you have the chance to make or literally brake your day. You can choose to believe that the world is out to get you and watch as it proves you right. OR, you can take a breath, slow down, and decide you are going to have a wonderful day filled with grace, and then watch as it proves you right. You see? YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE THE WORLD AROUND YOU! Believe that your thoughts are manifesting whatever your mind is believing! Try this exercise: Close your eyes. Picture yourself as a giant magnet. Whatever thoughts you have are going to go out and bounce right back and stick to you. So if you think negatively, and about things that make you feel angry, then your a magnet attracting negativity and anger. If you think positive and about things you WANT in your life then those are the things that will be attracted to you. Give it a shot! What do you have to lose besides some negativity?

    Are Your Thoughts Worth a Penny?
          “A Penny for your thought, but one word will suffice,” announces DaddyLongDays . “From your thoughts I give a penny per word.”
          “If my one word is worth just a penny,” retorts preacher “then my silence is worth twice as much. I value my time. To the timekeeper who keeps track of my valuable storehouse in heaven, he places high value likening my thoughts to a treasure. Where my treasure is, there my heart will be.”  A quote from one of my articles.   
    My treasure on earth is a by-product of my thoughts in heaven.  My thought are valuable, but there is no comparison to Lincoln’s coin. When I hired out as God’s employee, I agreed on a price. I got hired about the eleventh hour to receive every man a penny. (Matt. 20:9 Av; Dy)
    Who are the ones that have made grateful use of this valuable penny? Are you saying you are one among them?  In part your post states that thoughts go out into the universe.  Yeah! But who monitors them? The hard lesson I’ve learned about some thoughts is it’s better to have my say on my bed, but  keep silent. Bedtime is my time to try out thoughts.  I never imagined them going out into the universe, but it makes sense considering:  “For every affair there is an appointed time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
    I do read in an undertone day, and night. I habitually meditate, and that requires always thinking. While I’m thinking I insert a prayer as brain synopsis are firing often unable to discern the difference between thinking, prayer, and worrying. 

    As far as my thoughts going out into the universe, well that’s where God is listening, and he’s paying attention too.  Do you believe it?  Those in fear of Jehovah speak with one another, each one with his companion, and Jehovah keeps paying attention and listening. And a book of remembrance began to be written up before him for those in fear of Jehovah and for those thinking upon his name. (Malachi 3:16)
