It's time for a shift...

Do you ever give much thought... to your thoughts?

We have thought patterns and habits that have been instilled in us from the womb, and if you don't ever give thought to those thoughts or habits, you may find yourself spinning your wheels.

As you grow and evolve, so must your thoughts, habits, and actions.

I want to encourage you today to make a shift. I would like to give you a starting point or two.
I read something today that I pray gives you pause like it did me...

"Rejoice and be thankful! As you walk with Me (God) through this day, practice trusting and thanking Me all along the way. Trust is the channel through which My Peace flows into you. Thankfulness lifts you up above your circumstances.

I do My Greatest works through people with grateful, trusting hearts. Rather than planning and evaluating, practice trusting and thanking Me continually. This is a paradigm shift that will revolutionize your life." Jesus Calling, Sarah Young
A paradigm (para-dime) is simply a habit or a way of doing things essentially without thinking.

How often do your find yourself with negative thoughts, harsh words, grumbling, complaining, worrying, stressing... and you didn't give any of that a second thought... it just happened... automatically?

It takes work to shift these paradigms (habits) so that the opposite of this becomes your default. It takes intention to praise and trust and be thankful automatically. There is a reason the Bible refers to it as a "sacrifice of praise."

It is possible to operate from a position of peace and gratitude... REGARDLESS... of your circumstances.
It is possible to know and experience the peace that passes all understanding that God promises to all of His children.

Am I saying you will never have another negative thought, harsh word, or stressful moment? Heck no, we are human after all. But I am saying as you start to shift your way of thinking and intentionally work on recognizing and shifting those thoughts it becomes easier over time.

No better time than the present to start making that shift!
