57c47b4b6f36d8717a747c73a45946b9We become “what we think about” has been the topic of many books and we are reminded in these books to think about whatever is lovely, true, noble and decent. Kellie was fat and negative and her body simply mirrored her thoughts. Watch her on youtube below so you can hear from this university Engineering student how she lost weight and got happy! The book that Kellie claims that helped her change her negative mind set was “Ten days to self-esteem” by David D Burns. Application is key, listen to thoughts, catch the complaint, notice your thought habit to ridicule self or others, be aware of how your thoughts affect your mood and the joy or doom that is in the room. Recognize your negative thoughts of merciless ridicule. Do not lie to yourself, it is NOT them…it is YOU. Mistakes happen, let it go… train your mind to ask self “what is good about this?” in all situations you must choose to flip the switch in your head that looks for what is wrong with this… to what is GOOD about this?   Conscientiously…overtime…your b534d2906513290468dae890d52bcdcf--inside-job-art-printsthoughts will cease to be so cynical….and joy will emerge in full bloom and you will be the light.  People will notice a change and your light will draw others to the AMAZING new you! In time, when we apply God’s warning to “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all…..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.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.”  Yes, yes, yes…when we are obedient to capture every thought… “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”  Nothing will be able to bother you when you agree with God’s thoughts about you and others!  Bottom line…don’t sweat the small stuff…let it go, and think whatever is lovely! God’s living Word quoted from Philippians chapter 4 and 2 Corinthians 10 NIV.  Watch the video on youtube and fast forward to the 15 minute mark. Learn how this young university student went from fat and depressed to healthy and happy.
