Change your Thoughts to change your Actions !

Friday, February 15, 2013

an excerpt from Rick Warren's Daily Devotional - day 324 of 365 from www.YouVersion.com

The Bible says we're to refocus our attention because trying to resist a thought simply doesn't work. It only intensifies our focus on the wrong thing and strengthens its allure.

In other words, whatever you resist, persists.

Since temptation always begins with a thought, the quickest way to neutralize its allure is to turn your attention to something else. Don't fight the thought, just change the channel of your mind and get interested in another idea.

    Interesting thought, seems similar to the adage they have regarding mountain biking, "Never stare at the thing you're trying to avoid, because inevitably, you'll steer right into it."

    Good food for thought. emoticon
