Are you at the mercy of whatever happens to enter your mind? Sometimes this becomes an excuse we make. It is one tool we use to justify a lack of transformation in our lives.
Now, you may (or may not) want any transformation in your life, but people of God are promised, offered, commanded it.
So here we go. Can we, indeed, change our minds?
I did so last night. I am still surprised that it happened, and the degree to which it succeeded.
You see, I had a particular song in my head. It doesn’t matter what song it was, but you know how this works. Sometimes you get a song in your head and it just stays. (I once had the theme from the A-Team in my head for over a year, but don’t hold that against me)
I was tired of this particular song, whatever it was, so I set to thinking of a different song. I hoped to replace one song with another.
It worked. I don’t mind telling you, either, that, for whatever reason, the new song, that I now cannot get out of my head is Shine, by the Newsboys. (Thank you, Glen Lake Camp, for making sure that song was in my recall files.)
Changing what is in one’s mind is not always this easy, but it IS possible. More than that, perhaps it will help you to know that God is interested in changing our minds (Romans 12:2 & 2 Corinthians 10:5, for example).
Give it a try. Start with something little, like a song in your head.
God’s it for it. Are you?
