Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2 (NIV)
Has a life circumstance or perhaps a succession of circumstances left you walking with an emotional limp, so to speak? You may be in perfect physical health but emotionally you’re a wreck. Deep down inside you may have even thought a time or two that you’d be better off if it were a physical ailment that is holding you back. In that, at least concessions are made in life for physical ailments.
You may have even arrived at a point where you feel that it is hopeless to recover from the emotional handicap. Perhaps you have even worked through a forgiveness process but even still, a trigger causes the hurt emotions to rears its ugly head and you relive the incident as though it were happening all over again.
If your attempts to work through the pain has rendered you hopeless, perhaps it is time to try a different approach. Renew your mind by engaging in a mental regression to the point previous of the negative experience. Meditate on the positive emotions that were present and allow them to write over the negative emotions that are plaguing your mind.
Lord, thank You for giving me the ability to renew my mind daily. Help me to breathe deeply the air that was circulating, soak up the warmth of the sun’s rays that was beaming brightly and take in the sights and sounds that were present the day or season before the incident occurred that the enemy is trying to use to highjack my positive destiny.
