Renewing The Mind

Nothing changes if we never replace things and stuff keeping us bound to it.
~ Ann Friend ~

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.
~ Romans 12:2 ~

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
~ Philippians 4:8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Thoughts. Memories. The past, to include yesterday, has no power over our future, unless we continue to think on it. Renewing the mind can be a beautiful thing when we realize that nothing or anyone on this earth is perfect. Replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts helps to renew the mind!

We all have something about ourself being worked or pruned to produce more spiritual fruit. It’s no secret that mine is patience and long-suffering! I stopped responding to every negative thought that I entertained. Thus, my new sound bite, I careless. (smile)

It’s truly freedom to have choices. Remembering the past can be a good thing if we’re looking back for reference. Once upon a time, I struggled with negative thoughts and bad memories that kept angst and fear within my heart. It was also draining to carry.

When I surrendered to the Holy Spirit and Jesus became my Lord and Savior, old things became new and I began meditating on Philippians 4:8 to renew my mind. Praise The Lord.

Glory to God for the victory!

Through the process of growing and maturing, sometimes, the things we remember are not as accurate as we perceived. Sometimes, we have to choose to acknowledge it, forgive it and let it go. Renew the mind.

Renewing the mind brings change. Renewing the mind brings growth. Renewing the mind sets us free to make better choices. Renewing the mind opens up possibilities to see life from a different perspective.

Blessings, my friends, by faith, as we renew our mind and meditate on Philippians 4:8. (smile)
