Renewing Your Mind

Do you ever think about what you're thinking about? Everyday you wake up do you connect with your life? Everything you think, learn, see, and do, shapes your brain and changes your life. Whether you realise it or not, you’ve been training your brain since the day you were born. Do you know that you are actually your own mind gardener and that you can choose your thoughts?

The best thing you can do is renew your mind with the Word of God so we can think like He thinks and experience His good plan for our lives. Romans 12:2 says,"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."

When you spend time studying the Word and renewing your mind with the Truth, it helps you set your mind in the right direction so you can have more victory in Christ in your life. And as this new way of thinking gradually renews your mind, it dilutes the old thinking and transforms your perspectives and attitudes. Moment by moment of every day you are changing your brain with your thoughts in a positive or negative direction. Every time you think and choose, you cause structural change in your brain. Your thoughts impact your spirit, soul and body.

Right now I am going through Dr Caroline Leaf's 21 Day Brain Detox, which is an online daily guide that takes only 7-10 minutes each day, where Dr Leaf walks us through each of the 21 days guiding us to a toxic-free mind. This program is changing my life!

By controlling the direction of your mind, you control the direction of your life.
