So, I was praying about the New Year, in different sorts of categories.
Ministry: Love! Be patient. Trust God. Ect. (Not very practical but much needed)
Family: Love, Laugh, Enjoy them.
Then to my surprise I added, My Thought Life: Memorize "Whatever is Pure, excellent, praiseworthy" verse. Do a study on "thoughts".
Here is the first verses I found: Eph 4:21 Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, 22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.
I have been frustrated by my inability to act like a new creation. Is the key in our thought life and attitudes? Likely....
A New Year to learn more how to think like Christ and have an attitude that reflects Him and not my flesh. I am fine with that!
What is on your heart at this time of New Beginnings?
