I really needed to hear this today. The attitude of my mind. For days now, I have been struggling with my attitude due to some circumstances in my life. Going with my feelings... not my mind. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this today from your own quiet time. I think that I will go back to my Bible... and go deeper into that. Thanks again,


Oooooohhhh, that's a good word! As I was driving into work this morning I was listening to Rita Springer and worshiping...all of a sudden people started crazy driving, my blood started rising and I could actually feel myself holding my breath and thinking *ahem* not so nice things. Well, I caught myself and thought...I was just worshiping; what happened!?! I had to change what I was thinking and repent a little (just a little hee hee). Well, all that to say...this hit home.


Thank you so very much for sharing this today. It is exactly what I needed to hear. I was focusing on attitude/feelings. It is my mind I need to set on things above, to transform. God has used you to remind me today. Praise Him.


Thanks for sharing all you did this morning Joanne...I was hoping for a little tidbit from the weekend...oh...the business of taking up our cross...I wrote a post last week based on John 21...I will be really anxious to hear what came out of your weekend and the teaching!

I love your thoughts on renewing our minds...I have been praying a lot about that lately...seeing old ways of thinking creep in...wanting to have the mind of Jesus...desperately...

Well, I am on the clock as well so I will close but you make me excited for September when I go to the Deeper Still conference with my childhood friend...should be great to see Beth, Kay and Priscilla all together...

Have a blessed week...and isn't it grand to be able to plant flowers...(smile)

As a fellow GS Leader what kind of goodie bags are you doing? I am working on our end of year awards and I think they will be cute. I have 20 Cadette/Seniors and they still love all that cute stuff.
