It’s Mind Change March!
Hey, it’s March 1. We’re going to call it “Mind Change March,” and we’re going to make sure that every single day in this month, we’re going to press deeper into changing the things we need to change to get where we want to be in our lives. No more wasted time. No more regrets. 31 days from now we’ll be smarter, richer, wiser, fitter, closer to God and others, and we will be much better self-brain surgeons.
I have a question for you: are you tired? I don’t mean sleepy. I mean, you’re looking around on social media and you see that everyone else seems to have it all together, but you can’t get a job or find your keys or the rent is due or your relationship is on the rocks. Or instead of having two of the best months ever to start 2021, you not only didn’t keep your resolutions, but you can’t even remember them. And you’re just so tired of it all? Like instead of Jump Start January and Fabulous February, you had “Just like last January,” and “Failed Again February?”
Well, you’re not alone. I’m hearing a lot from people all over the place who are just so tired of being stuck and they don’t know how to change it.
Guess what friend? It’s going to be okay.
It’s mind change March, friend. And we’re going to start today.
Scriptures from my friend Clay (you need to get you some promises too, friend!):
God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Other Scriptures Mentioned:
These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly[a] with your God.
10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
