This is Part 3 of a three-part series on a crucial and often-overlooked way that we women can find peace instead of stress in our lives.
Most of us have been there. We pout with our arms crossed and ask: So am I supposed to make a choice to NOT accept that amazing opportunity at work, just to prioritize something else? (Time to pursue dating opportunities, be with the kids, or care for elderly parents…) No, thank you very much.
Or maybe we’re just in a difficult season that we wish would end. Or maybe a gripping sense of FOMO tricks us into thinking we’ll miss out—and so we say indiscriminate “yeses” because we’re too afraid to say “no,” and then we’re back to being too busy and stressed.
In all these cases, familiar words from Romans can help: “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 NIV, emphasis added.)
So maybe it’s time to change and transform our minds. Because that is what will help us embrace the season we are in. Let’s look at three crucial mindset shifts that will help us transform our thinking.
