Romans 12:2 tells us we’re transformed by the renewing of the mind. The renewing of the mind is just what it says: re-newing the mind (think furniture refinishing).
In this case we’re taking off the lies that fuel our negative emotions and wrong desires and putting on the truth of God’s Word. And we’re doing it in such a focused way that it actually changes our desires and behaviors.
If you’d like to learn more about the renewing of the mind, check out the renewing of the mind category over on the right.
If you’re ready to jump in and give it a try, the first step is choose a project. Something in your life you want to change. It may be a habit, it may be an emotion such as anger or worry, or it may be a sin. Commit to renewing your mind every day regarding this habit or emotion.
To get started, look at the tab up on top that corresponds to your project. I have tabs for emotions, good habits, and bad habits/sins. You may also want to read the posts in the Transformation 101 category starting with the oldest post and working your way up as these provide the foundation for the blog.
The Renewing of the Mind Tools category will give you ideas on how to renew your mind.
