Feeding Your Mind

This thoughts stems from a conversation I had recently with a friend. Someone had come to him seeking advice. This friend told him, “Feed your mind.” I began to dwell on that.

What you allow to enter your mind is what will come out in your actions and lifestyle. The eyes are a pathway to your mind. What do you see from day to day? The ears are another pathway. What kind of music and other content do you allow to enter your mind via your ears? It has always been said, “Garbage in, garbage out.”

I found that when I was a pastor, it was so much easier to put the right things in by necessity. The job required me to be in constant study so I could prepare sermons with substance. I miss those days when I could close myself in an office for hours alone with God.

This friend challenged me to find my mind once again with knowledge. The big question is, “What time will I set aside to do so?” I want to be the best I can be. If I don’t take this step, I will continue to remain stagnant.

Are you stagnant? May I ask you, “How are you feeding your mind?”

  1. Excellent question! My husband even though he’s not in a pastor anymore retained his discipline to study daily, research, write and meditate on God’s Word. I also found, years ago, that if I listened to reflective or inspiring music instead of country or rock music, it focused my thoughts on the Lord and made me much more content and at peace. Thank you for this post, blessings back,. ( “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus . . .” By the renewing of your mind . . .” so many verses to memorize regarding the mind, isn’t there?)
