PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: MIND THERAPY…part 4.
Text: Romans 12:2.
2: Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
Taking care of the mind is not an option but a mandate if you must be successful in life. If your body is dirty, and you have not cleaned up for 2 days, how do you feel? Of course, you feel terrible, stinking, irritating and uncomfortable. It is worst when your mind is dirty, you must understand that your mind regulates your life, why? Because it is the Central Processing Unit (CPU) of your life. The reactions of your mind to issues around your life play major role in the well being of your life.
If taking care of your body is important, then taking care of your mind is absolutely important. The focus here is how to build a glorious and happy home by taking care of your mind. Let me come out this way: life does not offer all that we desire, and when unpleasant events occur they form a mindset in us, let me give you an example you can relate with; when a child grows in a poor environment if care is not taken he or she might grow up with poverty mentality, such child must get rid of the adverse effect of poverty on his or her life through the mind.
A family that has gone through some terrible things in the past needs Mind Therapy, this is because the pains and hurts of the ugly experiences still come to mind occasionally, the mind will most likely recall the ugly experiences, and the scene will periodically flash through the mind. This is likely to affect every member of the family.
For such family to do well the mind of every member must be renewed because the ugly experiences tend to form a standard in their minds, and they must ensure they do not conform to that standard.
The environment in which a child grows matters because it goes a long way to affect his or her mind which eventually translate to his or her life. If the environment is bad there is need for constant renewal of the mind by his or her guidian. I grew up form one of those environments but my parents did a great job to ensure I get the best in life, someone from the same environment walked into the bank I worked one day and was surprised that such environment could produce a banker. Of course, there are a lot of us from the same environment doing well, but you can be sure that our minds are renewed.
Get rid of your ugly experiences, you can walk your family out of losses, poverty, low class, unfavorable circumstances, by ensuring renewal of the mind of your family members, always say to them statements like; ‘ you can make it ‘, ‘ you’re not a failure ‘, ‘ you’re going places ‘, ‘ the sky is your limit ‘, ‘ don’t be discouraged ‘, ‘ be determined ‘, ‘ break barriers ‘, ‘ try harder ‘, ‘ NOBODY IS BETTER THAN YOU ‘, and most importantly, ‘ as long as God is on your side and you serve him wholeheartedly you will be a success ‘. What a man hears and says to himself goes a long way in cleaning up his mind (MIND THERAPY). God bless you.
* Help me Lord to always take care of my mind.
