Please absorb this awesome truth! God has been dealing with me on the importance of our minds being renewed, and in that light, I share these words with you.
Renewing the mind is a little like refinishing furniture. It is a two-stage process. It involves taking off the old and replacing it with the new. The old is the lies you have learned to tell or were taught by those around you; it is the attitudes and ideas that have become a part of your thinking but do not reflect reality. The new is the truth. To renew your mind is to involve yourself in the process of allowing God to bring to the surface the lies you have mistakenly accepted and replace them with truth. To the degree that you do this, your behavior will be transformed.
So often, I have run ahead of God, and in my zeal for a transformed mind, layered over the old. May the Lord, in His wisdom and strength and through His anointed word, break all lies apart, piece by piece, giving us a smooth layer on which to build His truth!
Thank you for the extra notes of encouragement left on the last post. We all need encouragement, and your thoughts mean so much to me! I had intended on spending more time on a post, but had a sudden interruption in my plans with a short hospitalization.
I'm doing fine now, and I arrived home this afternoon after a two-day stay, having had some problems with low blood pressure. Thank you for praying, for I know you will! God has everything right in the palm of His mighty hand! HE IS FOREVER FAITHFUL!!!
