Thoughts are the well spring of life. 3.8.11

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23

"Man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will bring forth. If no useful seeds are put in to it, then an abundance of useless weed-seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend his garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful and pure thoughts." -James Allen

In proverbs man is warned to guard his heart and mind, for out it will flow all the issues of life. Thinking can not be separated from action, a man directly sowing what he reaps in his mind. Mankind is eternally frustrated with their environment, trying endlessly to change circumstances without changing their thought life. A man, becomes a strong Godly man, when he realizes he is responsible for his life circumstances, within the will of God, and just not a passive participant being a victim of his surroundings. Action. My sons, with great diligence cultivate your mind like a master farmer, guarding well the type of seeds that are planted and what you allow to grow…knowing well that as a man thinks, so he is. The abundant, blessed life is a product of God honoring, right thinking…irrespective of life’s circumstances.
