The thoughts that dance around in your head matter.

And while most of us know this, I wonder how many of us actively and regularly pay attention to our thoughts and put in the effort to make sure we are thinking correctly?

I know I struggle to do it.  Because it’s work.

Paying attention to my thoughts and then working to think correct thoughts takes effort.

On today’s podcast, I talk about the three E’s of coaching your head – encouragement, examination, and exposure.

None of us should feel bad if we struggle with our thoughts.  Everyone I know needs encouragement to think correctly about themselves, others, and how to perceive the lives we live. We can coach our thoughts or our “head” by examining our thoughts in the light of God’s Word and the light of what’s true.  Then, by choosing to regularly expose our minds to truth, we can transform the way we think.

Now don’t be misled to think that coaching your head is easy.  It’s not always.  It takes practice.  But it is the most important thing that you can learn to do.  Proverbs 23:7 tells us that it’s our thoughts that determine who we are.  If you want to live your life well and be the best you that you can be, you must also vigilantly pay attention to the thoughts that are in your mind.

Never forget that while God has given you life, you have the power to activate that life with the choices you make each and every day.

Choose to coach your head by coaching yourself in how you think.

We all need an encouraging nudge in the direction of right thoughts.  Choose to examine your thoughts regularly and expose yourself to right thinking.
