Renewing my mind

Sarah Young has been working on my heart lately....

I am renewing your mind.  When your thoughts flow freely, they tend to move toward problems.  Your focus gets snagged on a given problem, circling round and round it in attempts to gain mastery.  Your energy is drained away from other matters through this negative focus.  Worst of all, you lose sight of Me.

A renewed mind is Presence-focused.  Train your mind to see Me in every moment, every situation.  Sometimes you can find Me in your surroundings; a lilting birdsong, a loved one's smile, golden sunlight.  At other times, you must draw inward to find Me.  I am always present in your spirit.  Seek My Face, speak to Me, and I will light up your mind.

Good post. This scripture came to mind when I read it.

2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Oofda! This is like a healing balm for me today. I love how gentle Sarah Young puts things. Sometimes I need a little Joyce Meyers to kick my butt and other times it's the gentle whispers from the likes of Sarah Young that give me that hug I crave from my Father.
