{bits of wisdom}

What you think, You become – siddartha
 
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
 
Watch your words, they become actions.
 
Watch your actions, they become habits.
 
Watch your habits, they become character.
 
Watch your character, as it becomes your destiny.
 
(Yoga Philosophy)
 
Also found in Proverbs 23:7::  “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” (Proverbs 23:7)
Philippians 4:8:: 8 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.
Romans 12:2::2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
2Corinthians 10:5::5 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.
 
have you ever thought about what you think about. what you meditate on. what you consume. music, books, movies and etc. this morning i read an article about the supreme court calling a california law that prohibited children under a certain age from purchasing video games with excessively violent themes. now i think parents need to regulate what their kids consume and not the government but what was the sentiment behind the law. it was that exposure to such material at an impressionable age can make the subjects desentized to images or acts of violence. i think thats a little bit of a stretch but not an unfounded or unrational stretch based on some research. but thats not what we’re here to discuss. as I read that, i thought to myself, are there things that affect our mood and etc? there are. music does that. t.v. and movies certainly do that and so do books. thats why I think its imperative, at least for me, to watch what it is I consume daily, weekly, monthly. does it include those things that are holy, pure, noble and right? and how does a lack of that in my diet affect my life. if our minds are the incubator/most fertile ground. what havoc does birds of pray such as unbelief, doubt, fear, insecurity do that ground?  hmmmm these are just questions to ponder this tuesday.
 
let’s resolve to renew our minds daily. get that filter cleaned out.

happy weekend

what a day what a day! I love how little obstacles are thrown at you to really test your resolve. Someone near and dear said, “dont pray about a good idea, pray about a GOD idea” and thats so poignant! A God idea weathers the storms and little hiccups but a good idea is soon outweighed by circumstance most times. after being wait listed my little sister got into the program she applied to. prepare. prepare. prepare. to dominate.

p.s. dont you love this picture. her intricately beaded dress and then this elephant purse how adorable?! love it!

anywho, Looking forward to:

  1. getting my hair flat ironed
  2. sequin and black dance party
  3. dc tour
  4. surprise birthday bbq
  5. worship department bbq
  6. and all the glittery moments in between

Love you my people! have a fantabulous weekend!

its those things that are done in the quiet when no one is watching that make the public display look effortless and decadent. when you pray in the quiet and when no one is watching. when in public people are astonished by the level of faith but they didnt know that you spent minutes, hours, days, months and maybe years quietly proclaiming and declaring the truths you would soon declare before them. I’m learning especially today that small purposeful activities lay the foundation for those grand firework moments.
 
prepare. prepare. prepare. for the win and let GOD position you.
