Be mindful. You might have successfully resisted the temptation to react negatively to negative words, and deeds. But what is happening within your thoughts? You might have rejected that temptation to argue with words, to engage in verbal combat, in a negative way. But what is happening within your thoughts? Have you moved the battlefield to a place unseen within you? Do not harbor ill will. Do not let your thoughts react to negative energy. When you hold your tongue, or turn the other cheek, do not silently, within your quiet prayer, beseech Me to react negatively, on your behalf. Let your thoughts, when you encounter negative words, or deeds, from others, go instantly to the art of forgiveness. Quickly fill your thoughts with the word, forgiveness. Let your focus, of your thoughts, be forgiveness.
And The Holy Spirit says:
Resist the temptation to let your thoughts become the battlefield, wherein you retaliate, with unspoken rhetoric. In your thoughts you set the course of the day. Resist the temptation to trample the garden of peace, within you, with thoughts of anger, and frustration, hurt. Let forgiveness rule this day, not only in the words you say, or the deeds you do, but in the thoughts you harbor, deep inside of you. Let today be a day of peace, and forgiveness.
