You are your thoughts!

It's been a while you guys!

Happy new month & welcome to the month of August!

I went to church today with my housemate. We were a tad bit late and a late bus almost made us go back home but I thank God for the push that landed us in church today.

Of late, I must confess, I haven't been all too close to God, but today's message, brought  me back into His presence.The message was on "thoughts". I realized that (although I know this already), we are what we think about. The theme passage, Proverbs 23:7, reminded me of this past week and how I was so negative in my thoughts about my postgraduate dissertation and I didn't move forward with it at all. I realized that the moment I started thinking positively about it, I started making a headway.

I was scrolling through videos from my subscriptions on YouTube, today, and I saw a video from a you-tuber I follow; Victoria BWV, and she was, like the pastor in church today said, using her platform to share God's word and I felt obliged to do the same.

Her words touched me, because just like her, whenever I feel depressed or overly sad, I am usually not so close to God. And once I mend our relationship, I feel a whole lot better.

It never is easy, but just like Victoria, I feel the need to talk to you guys not particularly about a specific topic but about keeping positive thoughts and a great relationship with God.

It does help a great deal, with life's trials and hurdles.

I hope today's post has been able to touch someone and I pray that the good Lord helps and strengthens us to always keep close and wonderful relationships with Him and our thoughts.

It is well!
