Week 22: Fresh Fruit or Dead Fruit?

If the state of our health is not all that could be desired, let us examine our method of thinking; let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency; the tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.  Haanel 22:2

And then the intro: “In Part Twenty-two you will find that thoughts are spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a tendency to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently not to our liking. The various forms of inflammation, paralysis, nervousness and diseased conditions generally, are the manifestation of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred and similar thought.”

Reaping and Sowing is so familiar.  It is really coming around since learning more and immensely more since changing my attitude:  being a server, smiler, and talking the best to myself.

Haanel 22:30 brought up the Creator.  I loved digging deeper in the bible and found TONS of stuff:

Psalm 99

99 The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
    He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
The Lord is great in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!
    Holy is he!
The King in his might loves justice.[a]
    You have established equity;
you have executed justice
    and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt the Lord our God;
    worship at his footstool!
    Holy is he!

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    Samuel also was among those who called upon his name.
    They called to the Lord, and he answered them.
In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;
    they kept his testimonies
    and the statute that he gave them.

O Lord our God, you answered them;
    you were a forgiving God to them,
    but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
Exalt the Lord our God,
    and worship at his holy mountain;
    for the Lord our God is holy!

Nehemiah 9:6

Thou alone art the Lord

Thou hast made the heavens

The heaven of heavens with all their host,

The earth and all that is on it,

The seas and all that is in them

And the heavenly host bows down before Thee.

When we focus on and speak of the good and great, we get the good and the great!  I don’t even think about what I need to stay away from, get rid of, or eliminate in my speech or life anymore.  When we focus on the UP, it is drawn to us and we get what we sow.

Keep sowing GREAT seeds and you will get GREAT fruit!
