Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.

Hi everyone! I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Recently we posted a quote by motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar that says, “You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.”
The emphasis of changing what goes into our minds indicates it will modify how we think and respond to life events and the people around us. It will alter what we are and where we are. It’s up to us to make the choices and decisions that lead us to think like we never have before, and maybe even like we’ve thought not possible. It may involve choosing to forgive; to be thankful; leave a job; look for a new job; stop watching specific types of media; hanging out with different people; loading our minds with good images, music, and words, including Scripture; and finding wholesome things that will make us laugh out loud.
In Romans 12:2, the Apostle Paul uses even stronger language than Mr. Ziglar, “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.” That’s literally mind-blowing. Another version says to fix our attention on God and we’ll be changed from the inside out. This Scripture says it’s a purposeful choice to allow God to change our minds. If we do, the promised result is that we’ll know what is good and pleasing to the Lord. Do you want to be delighted with what you are and where you are? Me, too! We CAN trust this truth; it’s the Word of the Lord. I hope you’ll check it out for yourself. Thanks for being here. See you next week.
