Dear mind…

Dear mind,

Who do you think you are belittling a daughter/son of the king? A royal heir? Do you not know who my daddy is? In case you forgot who he is, I thought I’d remind you. He created this world from nothing, from the ground up. Genesis 1:2 states that the earth was formless and empty…and just days later the heavens and earth were completed in all their vast array meaning an impressive display or ordered series (Genesis 2:1)  I am not who you say I am. I am not unworthy, worthless, a waste of a human being, a disappointment or an embarrassment. I am:

  • a friend of Jesus (John 15:15)
  • a child of God and an heir with Christ (Romans 8:17)
  • a saint (1 Corinthians 1:2)
  • a temple of the holy spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19)
  • a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I am who God says I am. I am bigger and better than my thoughts and my mind. I am me and thanks to God I am free. I will no longer listen to your lies or be controlled by your senseless thoughts. I refuse to let you withhold me from being all that I’m suppose to be. Dear mind, you’re no longer my enemy, but you’re my encouragement to be a better me.

“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.” – Romans 12:2

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. – Philippians 4:8
