Come with me to a quiet place and find rest for your soul. In prayer focus on my strength overcoming the troubling thoughts in your mind and superseding those concerns with my love and hope. (Calming My Restless Mind)
The world has never understood that our relationship is far more profound than you possessing knowledge about me. When you seek my spirit to guide your life, I will replace your thoughts with my thoughts. I am the unseen partner in the transformation of your mind that your thinking will become my thinking and my ways your ways.
As you walk intimately with me, let my glory and presence enfold you. You will discover my love will be the avenue for you to release the negative feelings you struggle with toward those who have hurt you. I will help you overcome the resentments you hold against them. I will heal your mind from the pain and provide my all-sufficient grace for you to forgive them as I forgave you. (Don’t Let Anyone Hold you Hostage)
Instead of playing over and over in your mind the reoccurring thoughts of getting even with others, I will transform your life with the fruit of my spirit that is beyond worldly knowledge and comprehension.
You will experience my freedom when you pursue the renewing of your mind and heart. My peace is the byproduct of shifting the focus of your thoughts to my thoughts. I encourage you to learn through solitude and contemplative prayer the practice of releasing and letting go of your thoughts that separate you from me. (Open Mind, Open Heart)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV
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
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 NIV
