In the coming weeks, we are going to be focusing on the topic of “Renewing The Mind To Kingdom Thinking”. So first, grab a pen and journal/notebook because there is much to learn and writing it down and re-reading what you wrote, is key to growth. So let’s hit the road on the adventure of a lifetime!
It does not matter if you are a Christian or not; my blog can change your life if you apply the principles. I promise! How can I make this promise? Because they are not my principles AND they have been tried and proven true by many before you or I ever set foot on this earth. I’m sharing the principles and concepts of the Creator of all things beyond even what we know. You got it – GOD! Now before you hit delete and move on, I challenge you to hear me out. Stay with me in the coming weeks… What do you have to lose?
Whether you believe as I do or not, your mind is always being renewed, good or bad. The definition of the word “renewed” is: To make new or as if new again, resume, repeat, regain, restore, revive, replenish, reestablish, to start over. Daily things are trying to grab our thoughts and change our thinking. That is how trends work. You see it and maybe the fact of how it looks, sounds and who is promoting it, changes your thinking on it. Here is an example: the 60’s and 70’s were a time for bell-bottom jeans and hip huggers, but when I was in elementary school, if you wore them then, you were laughed at. Then someone with a voice that is being heard said they were cool again and BOOM they are back. Minds are renewed and bell-bottoms became cool once again… got to love society! We were created to take information in and then make decisions based on what we learn. The problem is that what the world offers, is all about increasing themselves. It’s about marketing and growth on an idea, dream, an individual, and not about you.
I want to share the real direction of the kick-off post. You have been designed for something bigger than you could ever imagine. God, the creator of the universe and all that is in it, created you. Many might be saying, “But if He did that, then why am I in the place I’m in today? Why has my life been so horrible and why am I here”? That answer and every other answer to every other question you could think of is in one book. You guessed it, the Bible! Your life, the success of your marriage and even the growth and success of your business, is all in one book and that book is the Bible.
As for me, I did not grow up as a Christian and I could probably write “the book of wrong” better than most; BUT God set me up! YES, I was set up by God. I encountered a beautiful young lady and she introduced me to a life I never knew I needed. I have lived both sides of the fence, I guess you could say. (So I do speak from experience when I say life is better on this side!)
This will be the kick-off scripture, Matthew 6:33 (Amplified Bible) “But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.”
The importance of this scripture is that we will never know us until we first know Him and we will never have completeness not knowing ourselves!
HOMEWORK: Write down today’s date and the time and note the areas of your life that you want to see changed. What are you believing God for? Write that down. The importance of this page and these notes will become evident to you as you learn and have your mind renewed to true Kingdom Thinking.
So that’s it for now, but tomorrow I will be releasing a Podcast which you can find on iTunes and by searching Kingdom Thinking or my name. Then on Friday, I will be releasing a V-Cast on YouTube and it will be wrapped around this same theme and I do believe it will be helpful to you in this adventure.
I believe our life is truly meant to be the greatest adventure novel waiting to be written as we live it out. So start living the best life possible NOW on purpose with purpose. Live with no regrets and love without boundaries. Hold nothing back and charge life head on. I am excited for what’s next, because the excitement of anticipation and not knowing of what is next is what births each breath in life.
So stand strong, live life loud and bold! Take this new day gladiator style, ruling and reigning it and not letting it reign you.
