Changing Your Mind

6 04 2011

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.  Romans 12:2

The way we think about ourselves and our situations is a powerful force in our lives.  It may be that we spend a great deal of time focused on negativity about ourselves and those around us.   This practice often leads to destructive thoughts that lead to poor actions.  I am so thankful to God for the blessing of His Word and His Spirit that can help us to think in brand new ways.  We may be tired or frustrated by where we find ourselves in life today but God can help us to renew our thinking.  He can help us to start again by adopting a thought life that is based on His will for our lives.  With open arms, God is always available to us to no matter where we think we are in life. 

I often pray for renewal for my mind and my thinking.  I need a fresh approach and energy for living each day that is based on God’s word and His will for me.  A simple prayer of thanksgiving, repentance and acceptance of His spirit and love to abide in us can be a powerful new start.  He is so faithful to meet us where we are and to help us to begin again with a changed mind.
