Theme: Made up Mind (Part II)
It’s easy at times to come up with an idea that seems “life-changing.” The hard part is putting that idea into effect and making it come to life.
As Christians, when we first heard the call of salvation to follow Christ, it seemed to us good at the time – a brand new way of life filled with joy, rest and complete satisfaction. As the journey unfolded however, we were faced with obstacles of various degrees. What seemingly seemed blissful, now became a literal war to the death.
**This morning, my scheduled getting up time was 6:30. This for me was a struggle. I did not actually arise until about 7:20. What finally yanked me from the sheets was the reminder of yesterday’s theme – having a made up mind. The result, not only did I get to see my son twice in the morning before he headed off to school, I also was able to pray for him as we walked through the door. Most importantly, I was able to sit and have that well needed quiet time before my Abba.
Point: It pays to have a made up mind.
“Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2
**This post and the minute reminders each morning come to you from my journal entry of many years ago.
