Renewing The Mind
As a man thinketh so is he….
It’s true! We are what we think. We act out of our thoughts. We can’t be above or below our thought life. So what do you think about? Bills? Tomorrow? What others think of you? God?
I was the one whose mind was everywhere all the time. I was a worrier. I remember fretting at the grocery store over which bread would be sufficient for dinner; white or wheat? I had a hard time making a decision and then when I made one I questioned it. That way of thinking did me more harm than good. I needed a change. My mind required a change.
In Romans 12:2 Paul challenges us to renew our mind with the word of God..
If we look at this verse carefully we can see that renewing (changing) our mind to conform to God’s ways, thoughts, & actions is a good thing. When we do we are able to prove what His will is for our lives.
This weeks’ song appropriately titled ‘Renewal’ talks about this very thing. I had a great time writing and recording this record. During the process it helped me to work towards changing my mind. I’m able to make firm decisions now, knowing that I have the mind and help of Christ. I hope it helps you too. God bless✌️
