Thank You, God!
Thank You, God!
Stephen A. Peterson
For a graduation present, Ashley Henry, 18, received 2006 brand new Lamborgini from her parents for maintaining an A average throughout her 4 years at Edmond Memorial High School in Edmond, Oklahoma. Ashley had parked her car outside her best friend’s house for a short visit. When she came out, she found that a rock had been thrown through her windshield.
“I was so angry I could cry,” Ashley told Donna, “I couldn’t sleep all last night. I kept thinking about all the senseless and stupid vandalism that goes on around here and in Oklahoma City. What would you have done?”
“Ash,” Donna said, “I would have tried to replace all of my angry thoughts with these four thoughts related to God.
Thank You, God, for allowing me to be here this day.
Thank You, God, for saving me from eternal damnation.
Thank You, God, for standing by me when I have offended You.
Thank You, God, for being my Loving, Eternal Father.
“As fast as the angry thoughts would return to my mind, I would wipe them out by
reciting my God thought prayer.”
Clinical Psychologists report that the human mind is only able to successfully hold and maintain one thought at a time. When a person thinks of God, it has no room for angry thoughts nor anger towards another person.
