POV Wednesday – Diva Thoughts

What do you think about most?



The future?

The past?

Your family?





Thousands of things can take center stage in your thought life, but only a small set of similar subjects demand constant attention – diva thoughts, let’s call them. And those little divas drive the show – a.k.a. your perspective or worldview.

So, the focus of your thoughts determines your perspective.

Conversely, your perspective says a lot about your focus.

For example, is fear one of your diva thoughts? Then you probably have a Murphy’s Law type worldview – if something bad can happen, something bad will happen.

Obsess about the past? Then your perspective of the future may not be too bright.

Focusing on problems? Days to you must seem heavy, stressful, dark.

The Word of God supports this theory, but on the lighter side. Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You.”

Basically, it’s saying that the main One singing on the stage of your mind should be God, because that’s how we experience peace. If we hear everything else in accompaniment with the Main Voice, backup singers rather than show-stealing divas, then we’ll remain in peace. A perspective of peace keeps the divas from taking over, making life much more manageable as well as enjoyable. One could even call it abundant.

Are your diva thoughts drowning out the Main Voice? Get them in tune with God and His Word, and you’ll hear a whole new, beautiful concert, no matter what you’re facing.
