Wisdom Wednesday: Don’t Believe Everything You think

Don’t believe everything you think. Sometimes our thoughts, even those about ourselves are wrong! I’m not sure who said this quote, but it’s a good one to print out and put on your mirror, by your computer monitor or on your fridge if you wrestle negative self-talk and body image issues. I love how the Bible talks about God’s thoughts being higher than ours. Additional evidence that our thoughts don’t always get it right:

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Who do you know that needs a reminder that their thoughts aren’t always the truth? Share the image below with them or pin or share for your friends!

    I DO!!! I am the one that needs this reminder! Far too many times throughout my life of 67 years, especially starting in the mid-teen years, I believe the lies of being too fat or no good enough in more ways than just the physical. I am reminded by God often and by my precious husband that I am made in His Image and that I am beautiful. That He wants me just as I am.
    Yes, I am maybe 6 or 7 pounds over an ideal but that does not matter yet my mind believes this and leads me to beat myself up for it.
    Thank you for boosting me closer to Him through these words.
    You are my neighbor at Lyli’s today! Grateful for you.
    Caring through Christ, ~ linda
