I Don't Look Like What I've Been Through – Beloved Women – July 24, 2020
READ: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 2:5 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: I know now why God was so specific when he talked about transforming your mind. When we focus on the outer man, it only covers up who we really are. Transformation begins with your thought process. Change your thoughts, change your life. You were created to be a game changer.
Our life is the representation of the things that we think. The thoughts that we think become a seed within our heart and are reproduced into our life. We must be careful that we don’t allow ourselves to continue to repeat those negative words, thoughts or even wrong decisions. We must continue to re-channel our thoughts and the things that we allow to enter our thought process.
When a butterfly is in the cocoon stages, it is normally hidden so that it can't be disturbed. Like the butterfly, isolation is a place where God is molding, making and developing you. We may go in one way, but if we continue the process, we will come out a different way; God’s way.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, I have to admit the process isn't always easy, but I am grateful that they are only temporary. Lord help me to stay focused, give me the stamina and even in times when I become weak or want to give up, help me to pull on Your strength that I may complete the process. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: What stage are you in the process? What do you need to do to not abort the process?
