Birds and Nests: Considering Our Thought Life (Phil 4:8-9)

Written by TruthMedia

Philippians 4:8-9.

Years ago I heard an older saint say often,  “You can’t keep a bird from flying overhead, but you sure can keep it from building a nest in your hair!” When you have some free time or are waiting for others, what do you think about? As you wake up or go to sleep each day, where do your thoughts go? This study will help you consider what God has to say about the things you should dwell on, for He has shared some practical principles that will help you in your thoughts this week!
