Thoughts: Mine, Others, Whose?!

I don’t wanna ever embrace again some people’s Thoughts of me,

those thoughts have hurt and made me temporarily delusional.

Yet I would like to embrace some people’s Thoughts of me,

For those have motivated me to believe higher for myself.

I don’t even wanna embrace some Thoughts of myself sometimes;

for who knows where those thoughts came from

As I am aware that there’s a wrestling match going on between my mind and members

that sometimes the good that I intend to do I do not; and the evil that I don’t intend to do I find myself doing. (Romans 7:8-24)

Yet the Thoughts that I think of myself matter more.

I better think thoughts that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report or rapport. (Philippians 4:8)

And thoughts of peace, and not of evil, so I can attain His expected end for me. (Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬)

For these are the Thoughts of my Creator which matters most than any thought I or anyone may have of me.

So, align myself I must with His thoughts of me.

No matter what anyone thinks of me,

I have to agree with their verbalized thoughts and visualize myself being so for it to materialize!

I don’t ever want to think too highly of myself again

Nor embrace the lowly thoughts of others.

Father, I pray Thee help me and us all to have Your balance in our Thoughts.
