Renewed to Life

“Don’t copy the behavior and opinions of this world, but rather let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you’ll know God’s will for you, which is always good, satisfying, and makes you whole” (Romans 12:2).

If you find yourself overanalyzing everything and everyone, and obsessing over all you’re missing, what else you might lose, and what you wish would have happened, hit the renew button.

Renewing your mind is letting God transform the way you see your relationships, circumstances, and yourself as he does. It’s living in agreement with the love, joy, and peace he speaks to your heart. It’s knowing you’re never alone, and never unloved, no matter what you’re dealing with.

Start by thanking God for one good thing in your life, and another, and another, until the joy that follows thankfulness overwhelms every dark thought, and the peace that comes with joy enables you to hear his voice again.

Choose to see this day as a blessing, and it will be.
