What does your mind look like?
Have you ever thought about that?
We experience the side effects of how healthy or unhealthy our mind is.
If our minds are a chaotic mess of unorganized thoughts, ideas and dreams our lives will reveal this.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
We live in a culture that applauds and favors a busy lifestyle. The more you are doing must mean the more successful you are.
What if we refused to believe this? What if we rather tapped into what our purpose was here on earth? What if there was time to be and do what we were meant to be and do?
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2
Busyness for the sake of filling all the minutes of your day and saying yes to everyone who asks from you and doing all the things is not our purpose.
I struggle with a chaotic noise and messy mind. I have to be intentional about seeking peace and calm.
In all truthfulness I seek help from The One who can help me to hold every thought captive and purposefully quite my mind.
Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. Hebrews 4:16 (The Message)
Ask your Creator? And then listen for His answer.
What if the stress, the anxiety and heartburn, all many of the other unhealthy side effects could go away if we paused?
And we got calm. We sought rest. We chose to spend moments to just be.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
May we know that we are loved and live like it.
