Happy New Year and Wrap-Up

My 31-day series on Renewal of the Mind was quite the journey for me.  Not only convicting, but also forced me to dig deeper on a subject that can be life changing.

One of the insights I have gained is how my mind is renewed by practicing gratitude regularly.  I see gifts and blessings from God when I stop to see.  I cannot be grateful and complain simultaneously.  And gratitude is not just lip service, but comes from the deep caverns of one's heart.

"The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want (for anything)." 
Psalm 23:1 (italicized my addition)

If you are interested in digging deeper into renewing your mind or practicing gratitude in your walk with Christ, I would encourage you to read "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp and/or "Idol Lies" by Dee Brestin.  I will be...AGAIN!

Happy New Year.  May 2015 be a transforming year for you as God continues to complete the work that He has begun.


  1. I have read and reread "One Thousand Gifts." It made me stop and be grateful for not only the large things in life, but the smallest! Happy New Year to you also!
