Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
I love change. I love home makeovers, I love beauty makeovers, I even love moving every few years, just for the change.
But my quest for change left me spending a lifetime of trying to change things on the outside. I would spend my time obsessing over workouts and clothing but what I didn’t realize is that I really longed to be changed on the inside.
I would look around and see what made the difference between happy and unhappy people, depressed and joyful people, successful and unsuccessful people, thankful and ungrateful and I like many people reasoned that it was in their circumstances. So I spent a lifetime trying to change my circumstances.
But it didn’t take long for me to learn that it wasn’t in their circumstances. The difference is what takes place in their mind.
What I also learned was how you react, process and respond to people, God and circumstances in life determines the outcome more than the actual people, God and circumstances.
So how does one begin renewing your mind?
