So there I was, Saturday night, standing in front of the mirror with clothes strewn everywhere trying to decide what to wear to church the next day. Then I remembered this lovely skirt I had thrifted a few weeks ago and I reached for it. The task of finding a matching top presented itself but then I saw my check shirt lying in a pile of clothes. I was unsure of this pairing at first since I had stopped wearing this shirt due to the fit but after trying on the check shirt, I thought to myself "Checkmate" hence the title of this post.
Let me challenge you now as I ask you one simple question, "what do you think about when your alone". The message today really caused me to further question the type of shows, movies, books and music I expose myself too. The truth is what we choose to mediate on matters because it shapes our attitude and that's eventually what we become. I am also talking to myself when I say this, we need to really censor what we allow our eyes to see. Its a constant struggle but God's grace is sufficient for us.
"And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise"
