-If you want to change your actions, you have to change your thoughts.-
Let me be the first to say that changing my negative thoughts around is hard. There. I said! Being a positive person is hard!
I’m not always that happy, sunshine in your face kind of girl. I have my mean girl moments. My moments of breakdown. My moments of… “Nobody likes me.” My moments of “ I don’t even like me”… but I try not to stay there long. It’s not fun! It’s not pretty.
So, what do I do? I go to my go-to verse for 2022 and have an attitude check.
22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
If verse 23 doesn’t say you need to change your heart, your thoughts and your mind in order to change your actions, I don’t know what does.
To have a Christ-like heart ( attitude or thoughts) is where it starts, my friend. If we don’t have that, then our actions won’t either.
What helps you to have a change of heart in order to change your actions? I’d love to hear.
