“Think Good Thoughts” by Colbie Caillat? The reason I ask is because I was cleaning my house the other day, and it came on Pandora. Realizing that this wasn’t just another pop song with repetitive lyrics, I listened up and found a few things I could really relate to.

In case you haven’t heard it yet, it’s goes like this…

I’m just gonna say it,
There’s no using in delaying,
I’m tired of the angry hanging out inside me,

So I’ll quiet down the devil,
I’m gonna knock him with a shovel,
And I’ll burry all my troubles underneath the rubble

When I’m alone in my dark dark room,
I have to tell myself to,

Think good thoughts,
Think good thoughts,
Imagine what the world would be if we would just,
Think good thoughts,
Stop the bad from feeding,

I won’t let the negativity turn me into my enemy,
Promise to myself that I won’t let it get the best of me,
That’s how I want to be
Na, na, na, na

I’m not saying that it’s easy,
Especially when I’m moody,
I might be cursing like a sailor till I remind myself I’m better,

Cause words can be like weapons,
Oh and you use them, you regret them,
Oh but I’m not gonna let them take away my heaven

And when I start feeling blue,
I remember to tell myself to,

Think good thoughts,
Think good thoughts,
Imagine what the world would be if we would just,
Think good thoughts,
Stop the bad from feeding,

I won’t let the negativity turn me into my enemy,
Promise to myself that I won’t let it get the best of me,
That’s how I want to be

I just think rain on a summer night,
Stars filling up the sky,
Sunshining on my face,
Making a secret wish,
Finding my happiness,
That always makes me hold my head up high,
I wanna hold my head up high,

I wanna think good thoughts (Imagine what the world would be if we would just think good thoughts)
I wanna think good thoughts (wouldn’t that be something?)
I won’t let the negativity turn me into my enemy,
Promise to myself that I won’t let it get the best of me,
That’s how I want to be
Na, na, na, na

Ok, so it is a little repetitive, but still – look a little deeper…

For once someone is saying that you can’t indulge in the negative thoughts that you want to. She is talking about denying herself, doing what goes against her natural instinct.

Of course, we have a different motivation to “think good thoughts” right? Our motivation lies in Christ.

When we “just think rain on a summer night” or admire “stars filing up the sky” we have one thing in mind…the awesome beauty of our Creator.

As women, it can be so hard to fill our heads with positive thoughts, because we are often given over to worry, control, and anxiety. Yet without this, we can get lost in the sadness and heartache of the world around us.

Let’s take a hint from Ms. Caillat, and “think good thoughts” today and for the rest of this week. Are you with me?
