APRIL 5 GROWN UP CONVERSATIONS

Today’s Topic: Be Flexible

Life teaches us that we don’t need a new day to start over – all we need is a different approach to how we did things before. Your new beginning can start midday, midnight, 3am in the morning, or the first day of a new year.

When you believe in yourself something magical happens. Being flexible to change gives you more opportunities than staying in the old ways of doing things. Two persons can face the same situation, and both will have a different approach in how they see their outcome.

The Word of God gives us a different mind-set or approach in how we view life. Those who trust God speak the promises of God instead of speaking about the unhealthy emotions and feelings that invade our space.

We deliberately refresh our mind with the Word. We speak to our spirit what God says about us, regardless of the circumstances.

Our culture teaches us not to hide our feelings but to openly express them. Sadly, when we vent our feelings, or should I say when we air our feelings aren’t we not giving our feelings life making them stronger and more difficult for us to fight?

Can I humbly suggest that if you need to express your feelings that you do it behind closed doors between you and God. I absolutely believe you will walk out of your room like a champion after a difficult fight.

God’s Word teaches us in Romans 12:2 “Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.”

Maturity teaches us that we don’t need a new day to start over. All we need is a different approach to how we did things before. Be flexible to change. Let God change us from inside out with a new way of thinking rather than allow the world to change how we view our circumstances.

Let’s stop watering dead situations. Try including God in your decision making.

C. Lewis says, “Pride is spiritual cancer, it eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment, or even common sense.”

The lyrics to “Near the cross” says, “Near the cross the trembling soul, love and mercy found me. In the bright and morning stars sheds his things around me. In the cross, in the cross be my glory ever, till my raptured soul shall find, rest beyond the river.”

Prayer Time: Father, I accept your forgiveness for all my flaws. I thank you for allowing us to be flexible so we can grow and not become stagnated. Our mind is restored, and our heart is at peace. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Things don’t always go as planned and that’s okay. Let God change your heart with a new way of thinking.
