Focus on the Good

Focus on the Good

Dappled sunlight
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.—Romans 12:2 (ESV)
Actions are born from thoughts, so if you can focus on good things and block thoughts that lead to destructive behavior, you can break the chain of bad habits and actions. If you can’t totally prevent a negative thought from entering your mind, you can refuse to dwell on it and stop it in its tracks before your actions follow.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, guide me to following Your will and focus on what is good, acceptable and perfect.
