Train Your Brain






My absolute life verse is Phil. 4:6-7, which I sum up to say " Don't worry about anything Pray about everything". Today I took some time to explore the verser that comes after that Phil. 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think on such things.
I had a life coach last year. She was great. One of the things we talked most about was getting into the right "state of mind". There were all kinds of exercises and most of them centered around really focusing on good, the positive, the best case scenario, you at your best, etc. 

Don't you just LOVE that the Bible gives such wise wisdom all throughout it. Easy access for anybody! You don't have to pay the big bucks for a life coach when you have the ULTIMATE LIFE COACH in Jesus Christ. He gave us this Bible as a guide and it's so so good.

So today, ask yourself what is TRUE? What is EXCELLENT? PRAISEWORHTY? 
Think on these things as often as possible. Write them down in a gratitude journal, stick em on a post it note, do what you have to do to start training your brain.
Don't listen to the lies of "You aren't good enough", "Who do you think you are", " You've lost whatever you used to have", etc.
 Listen to what is TRUTH. God loves you, has a plan for you, and works things for your good. 

If you are a Bible Journaling too and want to know how to get this look, this is what I did.
1. Applied Clear Gesso to page and let dry
2. Scraped Americana Bahama Blue and some green across the margin with a old business card
3. Added stickers from the "Whatever is Lovely" collection from Illustrated Faith and Bella Blvd.
4. Used a micron pen to write " Train your Brain"


And here I simply...
1. Gesso'd the page
2. Penciled in my lettering and flowers
3. Used acrylic paint to paint pink flowers and green leaves
4. Used a Pitt pen to write words.
5. Used a gray marker to add shadow on lettering
6. Used the Pitt pen to define the flowers after they had dried.

If you haven't tried Bible Journaling don't be afraid to jump in! It's such  fun way to interact with the Word! For my free class on it head to www.pzazzonline.com

Wanna help?


This summer we had the opportunity to visit and get to know many of the kids that we help support through "Rice Bowls" in India. Right now they are experiencing major flooding. I will post a few pics from one of the orphanages that we visited this summer. If you want to help be sure to head to www.ricebowls.org and on the line that asks who you are giving this for or in memory of you can simply type in "India Flood Relief".  









This season we tend to buy so much 'stuff' that nobody really needs. How about using just a small portion of that money to help provide for some real needs around the world. www.ricebowls.org
