Our minds are a powerful thing. What we think, we become…and it has lots to do with our imagination. What we imagine ourselves accomplishing leads to what we actually end up doing. “Before things are manifested on the outside…they have to be conceived on the inside. That’s imagination.” ~Andrew Wommack
I love looking through pictures from the past. I’ve been known to snap lots of pictures of friends, my kids, …people I meet along the road on my sales adventures… Looking back through these pictures reminds me of how much God has blessed me. Imagination isn’t just for kids….ya know. We use our imagination as adults in many ways…from the way we plan out our day, decorate our homes, plan our meals and parties, the way we remember experiences. We all have an imagination. If we choose to focus on and ‘imagine’ negative thoughts…then we become pessimists and miss out on blessings. Personal experiences and what people say about you to you…can form a negative imagination of yourself. If you see yourself unable to accomplish things…your imagination will hinder you from the life you are meant to live. You may even imagine someone to be completely different than they really are…and in turn demolish a healthy relationship. So… Imagine the best about people and do not worry! Worry is another form of a negative imagination. Imagine yourself the way your heavenly Father sees you…and then there will be a perfect peace within you. SEE yourself happy, well, successful, LOVED. Use your imagination properly! Focus on HEART kinda things. ….the things of LOVE. …the things our creator meant for us to focus on. …to glorify Him! The rest…well, it’ll diminish …covered by your happy dust. Remembering the things God has done …and being thankful to God are the proper ways to use your IMAGINATION.
