To give you an idea of how the government has reacted a year after the fire in the government home. Our population under 18 years of age is down to 177 children. That means that we are under 300 children total. So many of these children are returning to the same situation from which they were removed years or even just months ago.
Thoughts are strange things, are they not? You cannot see them although hundreds run through your mind every day. Some of them are good and some of them are bad.
Have you noticed that when a good thought enters your mind it usually leads to more good thoughts? But when bad things enter your mind other bad thoughts follow. Is there anything I can do to keep the good thoughts flowing? It is as though whatever you open the door to the same kind of thoughts will enter.
Yes, I can read Philippians 4:8, “Whatsoever things are true…honest…just pure…lovely…of good report…if there be any virtue, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise think on these things.
We can control our thought lives. But it takes an effort and the will to obey His Word.
