Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Isaiah 43:18

Shepherd’s Grove, we affirm what Scripture says about the mind. We believe that the way we think forms our future. Because when you change your thoughts today, your life may not change today, but it will definitely change tomorrow. Our circumstances are ultimately the result of our thinking. Therefore, guard your mind and tend to it like you would tend a garden. Make sure that you pay attention to what you think about, and in particular, what you dwell on. You can have bad thoughts that come into your mind, but you don’t have to dwell on them. As Hannah’s great grandpa used to say, “Birds can fly around your head and you can’t control that, but you can keep them from making a nest in your hair.”


Help me, God, to keep my focus on what is good.


What do you typically dwell on in your life?
