Someone cut me off in my car today. It wasn't that much of a deal -- and was over in just a few seconds. But I steamed about it all day long. And the more I thought about it the angrier I got.
Then my imagination took over and I thought of what I'd do if I saw that fellow again. I must admit it was not a pretty picture.
So maybe I should not have been too surprised that I was grumpy with co-workers and friends. Or that I didn't feel like eating. Or that I had a headache before I went to bed.
I learned something today: that thoughts are real things. And when I am tied-up emotionally to negative thoughts, I become a prisoner to them. Anger, for example, hardly ever affect the person for whom we harbor these terrible thoughts. They only eat away at our own well being and peace of mind.
We must have control over the things we think and the scenes we picture in our minds. Let's remember to consciously release our thoughts from the negative.
Finally, brethren,whatsover 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 praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8
