What Was I Thinking? (pt. 1)

 "And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."  Romans 12:1–2



Destructive Thought Patterns:

  1. Wounds of the heart: "I hurt."
  2. Cynicism of the mind: "I doubt."
  3. Paralysis of the will: "I can't."

How To Let God Start Changing My Thinking:

  1. By my faith: "Lord, help me trust you with my whole life."

    "…I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable."  Romans 12:1a 


  2. By my focus: "Lord, help me daily look to you to lead."

    "This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world…"  Romans 12:1b–2a


  3. By my forgiveness: "Lord, please set me free from the old me."

    "…but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."  Romans 12:2b

    "Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you."  Ephesians 4:31–32
