New Year- New Mind Part 1
I love this quote- “Even when circumstances are out of control, the way you think is completely within your power to change”.
The difference between living a victorious life and a life of a victim has to do with what you think about your circumstances. Romans 12:2 says do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. I often hear this scripture used in relation to not being worldly. But in its context, the rest of the verses in this chapter revolve around what you think about yourself, and how your thinking directly correlates to relationships with those around you. Let’s face it- when something negative happens to us, it’s normal to feel disappointed, sad, fearful, depressed etc. God created emotions and they are an important part of our soul. Something negative happens, you feel disappointed, and then the real battle begins: The opportunity to hope for something more, or to fear what else might go wrong. How you handle life’s disappointments can make or break your future! Stay tuned for part of the New Year- New Mind Series next week!
