Have you ever said that? “What was she thinking?” or better yet “Was he thinking at all?” This is an interesting phrase but as we look at it, turn it around. What am I thinking? Many say that you can tell what people are thinking by their actions. Well, that may be true but I think it goes deeper than that.
Outward actions are determined by the habits you have formed which in turn are caused by your upbringing, experiences and some heredity as well. Some people actually blame their heredity for their actions like it is something physically forcing them to do certain things when actually it is their mind.
You can experience a major change in your life and make it a good habit if you realize one thing: failure is a part of succeeding. You will fail. Failing should be expected but succeeding is a decision. Just like the baby steps that we talked about in a previous post, you must find that original desire that produces change and start over.
In the mornings when we get up at the last minute…our actions are saying “I got this handled” when in actuality, we need guidance. You are worth investing a few quiet minutes into yourself and your purpose by giving time to Him for gratitude and direction.
After all, that world out there is much bigger than it seems and He is working in all of it.
So, what are you thinking?
