Renew the Mind...

A change I've made before (way too many years ago) and I'm working on adopting again is memorizing Scripture...

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

There's something about getting it on your mind and down in your heart...

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)

It's not about piety or works, but long-term-knowledge, and change. 

By working the truth into my mind, I am nurturing my own spirit and helping it follow God's lead --rather than leaving it to it's own devices!

So my 1% change is to RENEW MY MIND by committing Scripture to memory (1-2 verses every two weeks for now). 

Having a friend in it with you can make allll the difference. A few weeks ago I emailed a girl from my last book-study and mentioned that I was wanting to work on memorizing but was having trouble getting off the ground.... She immediately accepted the challenge with me and now we have a quick phone/recital date every other week.... Sweet, huh!? :)

Looking forward to reading all your changes this week.... {Naptime Diaries' link up}
