Today is not simply a new day but when it dawns the 1st September wherever you live – it is a new month – indeed the beginning of a new Season. Like our lives some of us may be in Spring……….many are surely in fall or Autumn. It really doesn’t matter – Opportunity abounds to say –I will take this as a new beginning – once more I will start again. Praise God!
Today we’ll ponder balancing the MENTAL with the often hectic scramble of modern life.
In a spiritual sense we will not look at whether we are intelligent – naturally an academic achiever etc etc. Many times it is the naturally brilliant minds that can allow the mental aspects of their humanity to totally dominate and even swamp the social, the physical, get it all mixed up with the emotional and in the process maybe obliterate the natural ‘spiritual’ yearnings and desires of the wonderful human brain.
Let’s determine to use our minds – Think rationally and clearly if there is a problem. Separate, for deliberation, and use natural God-given understanding. Read – dont just get information second-hand. Research a topic…… (try to challenge your thinking) If you don’t use it……you will lose it. Never let you mind become fallow because of excess information we are being fed.
Prayerfully ask for WISDOM – His Wisdom
Ponder this answer. Who has known the mind of the Lord that He may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor.2 16. What does that mean? It we had that mind all the time (we’d blow up!)
Balance in ALL THINGS.
As little children we must come to Him with totally surrendered lives and Minds as well. Let Him in to our reasoning process at all times and even the most difficult decision can become clearer.
Life is indeed a wonderful journey. Its potentials and wonders are ahead for us all to see.
Have a great day! EXERCISE your brain in the midst of all the other ‘stuff’.
