You are what you think about...

"You are what you think about when you can think about anything you want.'

I read that in a daily devotional earlier this week, and it really caused me to stop and think. What is it that fills my mind when my work day is over, after the kids are feed/bathed/and in bed? I've really been taking an inventory (so to speak) of late. I really want to discipline myself to focus more on God in those times. I know He gave each of us creative abilities, and I tend to fill my time with thinking about stories, or some such thing, but I do not remember a time when I really sat down and meditated on something, anything, about just God.

I am not getting down on myself, just an observation that I wanted to share. Self discipline is good so long as it doesn't become legalistic and my basis of my relationship with the Lord.
Verse for today:
Philippians 4:8-9, ESV
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

I wonder what would happen with your stories and such if you gave some time to meditation? Might be interesting.
