Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Those pesky thoughts. As life goes on, everyday, memories are made. Focus on the good ones. Nothing good comes from focusing on negative stuff. Give nothing and no one power enough to ruin your day!
Every conversation throughout life has left us with something to remember. It’s amazing the things we choose to remember and the things we refuse to forget. Notice I said choose and refuse because that’s what we do. (shock face)
How many of us can remember something said more than x years ago that when stressed, it plays like it was said just yesterday? Positive or negative. I say remember good thoughts. Life can get tough enough without the added burden of remembering every negative thing someone told us or what we tell ourself. (shock face)
Pfft, here’s the thing, as we grow and mature with spiritual fruit–love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance; the ability to renew the mind becomes easier and you adapt and adjust to life challenges better. (smile)
The biggest aha moment, I realized lately was to talk less. I’ve had writers block for a few days because too many opinions were in my head. (shock face) Sometimes, it is, what it is.
So I had to mediate on Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. This helped me tremendously to cast those pesky thoughts! Praise The Lord!!
So my dear friends, what are you choosing to remember and refusing to forget? (smile)
