STOP!

No comments

OFF buttons. 
Yes. I am thankful for OFF buttons. 

24/7 media outlets spin and stream BUT the OFF button silences them all when we use it. 

And then I thought how many other things in my life have OFF buttons? 
With Holy Spirit’s help, even our minds have switches we can flip – much akin to an OFF button.
I say that because I think my mind never truly shuts off 🙂 but I can redirect it into a more wholesome direction.
So can you.

So, when an avenue of thought begins to stream and the Holy One alerts us; yes, we can flip the switch. We can say STOP to that train. 
And it’s been my experience (with practice) that train stops and a new rail of thought will open. 
Yes. I am grateful. Very grateful for this holy gift of STOP. 

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things. source

But let’s be real, let’s be honest here. Verse 8 is not easy to do just off the cuff without practice. 
However, we are not left without Help and Instruction. Check out HERE verses 4-7.
These verses believed and obeyed will give us real help living verse 8; real help saying STOP to those unruly and not so nice thought trains all too ready to run on our mind rails.
