Joy #22 - A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste
Your mind plays a powerful role in your life. You can have right thinking or wrong thinking; right understanding or wrong understanding. A big part of becoming more like Jesus and becoming the person you are called to be has to do with renewing your mind.
You have to exchange your old thoughts for God’s thoughts. Understand this: YOU are the thinker of your thoughts. Think about what you’re thinking about! Your mind is one of the primary battlegrounds of your life.
Higher thoughts always lead to higher ways. There are many arenas where we will have to exchange our thoughts on a matter for God’s thoughts on a matter. You can change everything and anything in your life by changing your mind about it. Give yourself permission to say: I’ve changed my mind about that.
This list of things for our mind to dwell on is all positives. God wants us to have a positive mind set. It’s what you choose to dwell on that determines where you will go.It’s not a matter of what you don’t want to think about – it’s what you choose to dwell on. You’ll never live a positive life with a negative mindset.
Your mind is the door to your heart. You can have a good heart, but terrible thoughts. Seek a higher life by seeking higher things, by getting a higher mindset. You have the power to change your mind.
Change your thinking about finances, relationships, or your marriage. Seek higher thoughts and higher ways!
