A Beautiful Mind

“Instead, there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness – righteous, holy and true.” Ephesians 4:23-24 (NLT)

I love surfing the web. Finding recipes, downloading articles, checking out websites, catching up on Facebook, etc. Unfortunately, all that surfing tends to bog down my computer causing it to operate really slow. Easy solution – I defrag my computer to clear out the scattered bits of information and organize my disk space. Amazing the difference it makes, and I’m back up to speed in no time.

I don’t know about you, but my mind can get bogged down with scattered and runaway bits of information. A tiny seed of doubt, fear or discouragement slips in and before we even realize what’s happening, we’re overwhelmed with careless thoughts. We entertain a thought for a moment and an hour later it has mushroomed beyond our comprehension. And if we’re not careful, those thoughts will ultimately impact our emotions and actions as well. Not to mention all the wasted energy we expend trying to maneuver through them.

God’s solution – clear out the clutter and defrag Your brain. Halting a thought before it has time to seize any unoccupied space terminates any chance of that same thought taking root. Recognizing Satan’s lies and deliberately choosing to saturate our mind with God’s truths will enable us to function at our best. Next time we find our mind conjuring up the unthinkable or settling in on thoughts which don’t serve us well, we would be wise to drop to our knees and seek His truth. A spiritual renew which realigns us with God honoring thoughts not self-centered chatter.

“Father renew my mind with Your thoughts and teach me to walk in the freedom that comes from trusting in You.”

For His Glory
