Don’t Go There!

dont go thereI was standing in line to board a plane when I overheard a conversation between a mom and her daughter. They were going to visit family when the daughter said, “I’m going to gain 40 pounds on this trip.” Impossible. I thought. Then she said, “I’m not going to have a good time, either.” Most likely. I smirked.
I remember what a friend of mine who mountain bikes once told me, “Look where you want to go, not where you’re going, and the front tire will always follow.” I didn’t believe him. I crashed a lot. When I followed his advice, much to my surprise, my bike did go where I was looking.
We choose the road we’ll go down by what we’re thinking. Our actions do follow our thoughts. Here’s a quick one line truth to use throughout your day. “Don’t go there!” Satan wants to get you to think negatively about yourself. Don’t go there. Your past wants to drag you back. Don’t go there. Your frustrations want to get you to scream. Don’t go there.
Listen to your Jesus as you go about your day. And when your thoughts to head in the opposite direction, don’t go there!
