When I spend time with positive people, it changes my outlook and thoughts for the better. When I spend time with God, it makes an even greater positive impact. God wants us to think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Focusing on His qualities is a great place to start.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are some things we might allow in our lives that negatively influence our thoughts? Maybe certain TV shows, music, social media channels?
2. What are some things we could do to help fix our thoughts on what God wants us to fix them on?
Challenge: Write or type a list of God’s qualities (attributes) using the alphabet and refer to it often throughout your week. Example: A=Amazing; B=Beautiful; C=Compassionate, etc. Then spend time worshipping him in prayer and listing these qualities as you pray.
