The Positive Mind…

3 Comments


Quality Time with God…

Romans 12:2

“Be not conformed to this world, but BE TRANSFORMED  by the renewing of your mind.
mind: the intellectual, thinking power in man; the power that Conceives, Creates.
transformed: to be turned, to become something completely different.
Transformation is the process of metamorphasis…like the Catapillar to the Butterfly!
Like the butterfly that never goes back to the pupal state, a transformed mind never goes back to thinking as it once did. Oh, the mind will try, unlike the butterfly, however, once transformed the Spirit will rise up to warn, deter and assist the mind to stop the reversal! Jesus did promise to send the helper, He is the Holy Spirit!
DID YOU EVER NOTICE?…
 
When one thinks negatively one begins to feel confused, angry, and fearful. The body, mind and spirit of a man tells him that these thoughts are wrong with these symptoms. It’s amazing that God provided us with a triune system that rises to tells us that we are straying from His will for our lives?
One must believe this was on purpose…Triune…hmmmm. Could it be it is directly because the Trinity cannot reside where these negative abide. Is the rise a type of notice that things will be moving out and that we should be paying attention? Be aware of your thoughts, they could be giving the land LORD notice of your moving out!
BE AWARE OF YOUR THOUGHT LIFE! :
When one thinks, dwells on, positive things the body, soul and Spirit REST. One is calm and happy. The man stops questioning and searching.
Hmmm…One’s body, soul and Spirit KNOWS and tells the man that HE IS HOME!
The bible says to take every thought captive:
2 Corinthians 10:5
“casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”
This is the obedient and diligent act of The Positive Mind! Remain AWARE of your every thought!
 
BLESSINGS LOVES! ♥ † ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. We have the mind of Christ…good post, and it kind of goes with the “yes” theme a little bit, don’t you think? The positive mind?

    And I really like your point about rest–when we rest in the Lord, He can help those agitating negative thoughts calm, which in turn brings mental rest, where He can more easily abide. We abide in Him, resting, and He abides in us, bringing even more rest.

  2. Not sure if the previous comment made sense, but you’ve definitely got me thinking!

  3. It absolutely makes sense. The bible, God’s Word, continually reminds us “how to” think…positively. He continually reminds us that negative begets negative, this includes thoughts.

    A seed grows according to it’s own kind. Therefore a negative thought breeds a spiral of negative “imaginations”! While a positive thought breeds rest and contentment and an open door to the throne room of God’s presence.

    It’s amazingly easy…yet so hard to do. Hence the renewing of the mind!

    Thanks Ann…and “Yes” 😉 I whole heartedly agree that it goes right along with the Yes or No.

    I am so grateful for you and your blog.
    Thank you and Blessings
    Andrea
