Pause, ponder, and perceive fresh inspiration.
If you’ve never pondered
The beauty of the sky,
Give it a try.
Let it get you high.
Let your mind wonder
And you’ll grow fonder
Of being alive.
Perhaps our primary purpose is to ponder until we’re continually inspired by awe and wonder.
If you will consider your thoughts and ponder how your mind works to encourage or discourage you, you can learn to use it better.
To think a thought is one thing; to ponder it and wonder why you thought it, is something different that can make a difference.
To eat is one thing; to savor your food is to dine. To think is one thing; to savor your best thoughts is to ponder.
Life tends to bend and twist our feelings and thoughts until they’re a tangled mess and we need a realignment.
Before you insult or accuse someone, procrastinate. Then don’t get around to it.
The most effective way to overcome temptation is to avoid it. Temptation distancing really works.
Almost every person on the planet believes that some behaviors are morally wrong. That’s not judging, but freedom of conscience.
To forgive is to free yourself from the tormenting emotions of anger, blame, revenge, bitterness, hatred, and envy.
Forgiveness doesn’t forget. Instead it gives up any presumed right to blame, retaliate, or hate.
Stop trying to “forgive yourself” and instead humbly ask God for forgiveness. You’ll be amazed at the relief and healing you receive.
Life’s give and take can’t make you hate. Be courageously tender by forgiving your offender.
Forgiveness breaks the chain that lets other people control your emotions.
To refuse to forgive is to refuse to heal; to choose to stay stuck in anger and hurt.
Unforgiveness blames others for their wrongs while excusing your own wrongs.
If you want to freely live, ya gotta forgive.
Hoist hope in your heart. Your dreams matter.
Inspiring dreams will motivate you to move forward with hope.
What do you say when you’re trying to encourage someone? Say that to yourself.
Let your mind and your heart work together with neither cancelling the other out.
Success in a bad thing isn’t good. Duplicate kindness, not hate.
Creativity allows the mind to wander into positive pondering and fishes out the best ideas as they flow by.
