A New Year, a New Way of Thinking

I recently read this quote by an unknown author:

"What a world this would be if we could forget our troubles as easily as we forget our blessings!"

How true.

The Bible tells us to take our thoughts captive and to make them obey Christ (see 2 Cor 10:4-5). Taking something captive implies violent action, so this isn't an easy task--but anything worth having is worth working for.

So, my new habit to form for 2009 is to forget my troubles and to remember my (many) blessings.
