For As He Thinketh In His Heart So Is He.                                                                                                                              Proverbs 23:7

 

The mind is a sacred enclosure,
Into which no ill can come,
Unless you bid it welcome,
Where then the deed's first done.

Every action that we make,
Everything we do,
First takes place within the mind,
And then the dream comes true;

So when we think upon a thing,
When we dwell upon it,
We welcome it into the mind,
And in our heart become it.

Eventually it finds a way,
To manifest itself,
Not content to stay a dream,
Upon a mental shelf.

This is why the Bible says,
Above all things your mind,
Must be guarded to protect it,
From all evil that we find.

The things we think about the most,
Form who we really are,
For the man is as he thinketh,
As he thinketh in his heart.

I have always found that scripture and concept so interesting. There are so many thoughts going through my mind, I think I don't have time to sit and think of anything too sinful. But I guess I am cluttery like my poor mind!
