This quote from Wayne Dyer came up in my Facebook memories today, so I made it pretty, and reposted it…
It seemed fitting to the discussion from the Weekly Forum from last night, interestingly. I posted the following on my own Facebook page as well.
“Do not be deceived:
God cannot be mocked.
A man reaps what he sows.”
~ Galatians 6:7
What you put IN is what comes OUT ~ whether it’s programming your heart and mind with good, or with bad!
I can’t add all the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, and expect to make raisin bread. I can’t fill my glass with water, and expect to be drinking juice (unless Jesus is nearby!) I can’t put coconut oil in my gas tank and expect to get very far.
What is planted WILL grow. As a former co-worker used to say, you can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip. There is no blood in a turnip, and no matter how hard you squeeze, or how many methods you try, it will NEVER happen!
The SAME goes for my mind, even though sometimes it’s more challenging to filter the “bad stuff” out. Maybe it’s a negative co-worker, maybe it’s a negative family member. Maybe it’s music playing in the background. Maybe it’s something you’re watching on t.v.
Be on guard!
THIS is why I do NOT watch the news (for instance), and haven’t for the majority of my adult life! This is someone else’s skew on life, and I don’t need or want that!
For me, MY view needs to be filtered with the Word of God! Do I have it down perfectly? Absolutely, positively, unequivocally NO! But I strive to, every day. Some days I’m better at it than others, but THAT is my filter, that is my goal, that is the hope and desire of my heart!
And with THAT, I’ll add THIS verse:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
~ Proverbs 3:5-7
