Word-Filled Wednesdays: Carnal vs. Spirit
So lately, I have been going through an Audible book, Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer.
She has been sharing a lot of verses concerning what our mind dwells on. Our minds dictate what our actions will be. If I spend all day thinking about the wrong negative things....and believing lies about who I am, then I will be negative and act in the way I believe myself to be. I find that the more I think a certain negative way, the more I ACT a certain way. So, today, I just wanted to share with you that you if you are dwelling in the Spirit by meditating on the Word of God, and thinking positively--you will be positive in your actions. If I spend all day thinking about how I am always at home, how I am tired, we do not have this or that, my husband always is at work---what do you think my day will be like? Very depressing and negative! Not to mention I do not get anything done if I spend my day thinking these depressing and very very negative thoughts.
I guess "What is my mind feeding on?"
I need to do a health check on what I am "feeding" my mind!
Love you all and I hope that you guys are provoked and encouraged to have the mind of Christ and to seek after the things of the Spirit. It is life and peace!
I did want to say if you guys wanted the same Audible Book, Battlefield of the Mind. Audible.com offers a free month trial of their books. You get to choose 2 books for free from the start off. I did that, and got Battlefield of the Mind and an Audio Bible. Audible.com works with Amazon.com so it is safe, and I have tried it for about 3 months now.
