In order to get a flow, and truly live into my word for the year, I have planned to blog regularly as a way of stretching myself. To be intentional I wanted to have a format to my posts, and be rather consistent in posting. So for now the plan is to post questions that I am asking myself on Tuesdays, in the hopes it will spark a dialogue with those who read my blog, or just cause you to have pause and reflect on it for yourself.
This quote came from Pastor Mike Glenn of Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, TN: “What you think is what you do, what you do is who you are.” The context of this quote comes from a sermon on reading Scripture with intentionality and focus. It’s been rolling around in my head and the question that came from it for myself was,”What am I thinking on at any given moment in my day, and does that reflect who I desire to be as a child of God?” It’s then spawned many further questions as I examine a snapshot throughout my day of what I am dwelling on, and the image that reflects in my actions and ultimately who I am. Perception and reality are two vastly different things when it comes to our own image. I pray this impacts you, causing you to pause and dwell upon your own thoughts, as it has me.
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.-Philippians 4:8
