The Next Thought

Sometimes our thoughts are darkness
And shackle us to sorrow.
The manacles of things that happen
Bind us from tomorrow.

It's the next thought that matters
In the moments of our days,
The fleeting jewels of time we're given
To walk in Father's ways.

It's the next right thought that fuels
The next right word we speak;
That power over which we set
The course of life we seek.

The thought, word and then the deed;
One moment changes all.
We build a life with thoughts
And kingdoms rise and fall.

"We build a life with thoughts" is such a powerful statement because it is so true! Great food for thought.
Nichole Hall 25 May 2010
This poem really spoke to me. I can relate to how the things we think and feel keep us from moving forward. And how it's a decision to choose to be like the Father. Putting one step in front of the other as we journey through life making choices that take us down the right path or not. I was greatly encouraged by this as it helps me to remember that sometimes the things that I feel are just that...feelings. And that I have to remember God is who I am to serve. (Don't know if that's where you were going with this, but that's how it's helped me) Thanks!
