Just a little thought on faith today–are your thoughts of God the best ones? Sometimes we might be upset with God, and they are not. But most of the time, when I practice that pause, when I color every thought with Jesus–well, my thoughts all just start radiating God’s love. It’s like ripples in a pond. That first pebble thrown in makes the first circle–and then they just repeat from there. And keep going.
When I start my day restoring my soul with God’s word–that is the pebble. Then it is so much easier to let the ripples happen the rest of the day. The best ripples are ones that reach other people–and that is when another pebble goes in the water–because that smile or laugh in response encourages more pebbles that I will throw, and hopefully the other person will throw some too.
Yes, Lord, you are my best thoughts. And I am so thankful you color my days.
