New beginnings - 8 more days
Hey there Lovebugs :)
We're coming down the home stretch! EIGHT MORE DAYS until the beginning of a new year! Since eight is the number of new beginnings, I find it only befitting to begin something new today. Starting today, I will be adopting a new mindset when it comes to my life. I'm talking my relationship with God, my marriage, parenting, ministry, business etc. I'm committed to renewing my mind so I can enter the new year with a new mind.
Everything begins as a thought. We think something and that leads to a feeling. Then, that feeling leads to action. So in order to produce the right action, we need to produce the right feelings. In order to produce the right feelings, we need to produce the right thoughts. Just what are we thinking? And why are we thinking what we're thinking?? More importantly, how do we change what we're thinking?
The most important thing we can do when it comes to renewing our minds is to fill our minds with the truth. But what is the truth? Well we know the truth is the Word of God (John 17:17). Merriam-Webster defines truth as "the real facts about something" so the truth is also real. So, when it comes to making decisions, are they based on the truth?
Renewing our minds will not happen overnight. It's a continuous process that leads to better decision making, less stress and living a life based on truth. Changing our thoughts will require a whole lot of effort, commitment and dedication. It may be challenging but it's not impossible. By staying in the Word and getting to the truth, we can create a new beginning of renewing our minds and changing the way we think, which will ultimately lead to changing our lives!
In addition to it being eight more days until the new year, it's also eight more days until the launch of our Healthy Livibg and Eating Initiative! The purpose of the Initiative is to promote healthy living and eating alternatives for the purpose of obtaining and maintaining a healthy mind, body, soul and spirit.
