Renewing the mind involves removing old habits and establishing new ones.
Anyone who has ever been around people way older than themselves knows the old person will recall many years ago better than yesterday. Seems this can be a fact of life. Now there are exceptions to every rule. I’ve known of older women in their eighties who are sharp as tacks. That being said, my subconscious gave me a vivid dream last night about our “move”. We ended up living with the great 8 in my first child hood home. There were vivid details. I dream very vividly. Now, this home was built before 1960 and had only one bathroom. There was a rough basement and it wasn’t in the best of neighborhoods. My hubby and I were establishing ourselves there. I was adjusting the great 8 and the old stove that pulled out to cook on stove top. My words to hubby, “I was desperate to move some where/any where..” After some more details of living there and partly enjoying it, I woke myself up with thoughts of NO WAY. I couldn’t get back to sleep. I went to the living room……
Granted my health is compromised with extreme allergies/congestion/sinus. I blame most my interrupted sleep on that. But, once my nose is cold and stuffy, I’m pretty much a gonner. My allergy pill is once every 24 hrs so it wasn’t time to take another one. I had been up from 3:30 am till 6 am when I decided to layer clothes, turn my space heater on, and try to rest a while in bed again. You know 10 am. found me with a stopped up nose wanting to get out of bed. My congestion made my face feel like a ton of bricks, so I didn’t really want to get up at all. Good thing my cat insisted on breakfast. (I only had one in my room with me)
I tell my mind and subconscious I will not dwell on Ohio homes. I will be present in my Florida life. in Jesus’ name. I was digesting Matthew 15: 16, and vs. 18. Verse 18 reminds whatever comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this is what makes a man unclean and defiles him….. My mouth says it will be renewed, as will my mind, for I seek the perfect will of God. (Romans 12: 2)
