It’s amazing how everyone is so full of advice at this time of the year – in fact everywhere you look you will find advice, some good, some not so good – on how to get rid of that excess weight gathered over the holiday season; how to get the best body; the best exercise workout for the new year; great devotionals for getting our spiritual life off to a good start.
Despite this plethora of wisdom, very few people really stick to these New Year’s Resolutions. In fact few people make lasting changes in their lives despite the desire and sometimes-desperate intent to do so.
It all begins in your mind: your thinking, your emotions and your choices. If your mind isn’t right, then you will not stick with anything, no matter how great. Your mind is the most powerful thing in the universe – after God, of course. It is with your mind that you choose to develop your spiritual walk and relationship with God, and it is with your mind you choose to stick with that diet and exercise regimen.
We have been created with a loving, powerful and sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) and God made us virtuous, but we choose to go down our own pathway (Ecclesiastes 7:29). So we are powerful enough to choose right and stick with it. This is actually our default mode. We need to train and discipline our minds in order to develop our spirit and have healthy bodies.
(See this VIMEO clip of excerpts from some of my teachings (2.45mins). For more MIND Scriptures see SCRIPTURAL FAQ’S)
To this end, we need to renew our minds (Romans 12:2). This is one of the main reasons I developed my 21 Day Brain Detox to help us renew our minds and turn News Year’s Resolutions into lifelong resolutions.
(See also this BLOG posting and this VIDEO CLIP (28 mins) re ‘popping those toxic thoughts and renewing your mind.’)
Join thousands who have taken up the challenge of the 21-day brain detox and who are changing their worlds and impacting the worlds of those around them. And if you are already doing the 21-day brain detox, send us feedback (see this VIMEO – 1.33mins) so we can encourage each other, and I mean each other – I am always doing a 21-day brain detox!
Happy New Year and happy mind detoxing!
