We have entered and brand new year with new dreams, expectations, and even aspirations. While we are creating passions and goals, I propose to you thought. This year, choose to change your mind. So many of the things God has given to us is held up by a corrupted mindset. If you can control the direction of your thoughts, then you can change the direction of your life.
Why is the mind so important, because our thoughts represent our heart! Our thoughts supersede our actions. For example, many of us for the new year would like to lose weight, if our mindset hasn’t changed about getting healthier than our feet will never make it out of bed. We’ll set the alarm, buy a gym membership, even get the clothes to be stylish in the gym… but if our mind has not been convinced of the benefit of working out, then we simply won’t do it.
Today, as we take the first step toward this year’s goals, don’t forget your mind. Take time and focus on who mentally you want to be and make the rational decision to stick to it. When you feel too tired or discouraged to push forward to your goal, change your mind. Tell yourself that you are a finisher and God has not only given you the victory but the ability to accomplish what you have started.
