Shut It Down

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 Godʼs will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

You know that moment when your phone or computer is not working the way it should?

It’s response time is slow and simple things become frustrating.

Instead of wrestling through it or simply giving up, the first thing to try is always to shut it down and restart it.

Turn it off.

The screen goes blank and you have to wait for it to restart.

It is the same with your mind. 

When you are tired or overworked your response time slows down and simple things become frustrating, instead of wrestling through or simply giving up, take a break.

Stop focusing on what you’re working on and take a mental vacation.

Unplug from the world around you and take some time to plug into God’s love for you.

Rest in His grace.

Refill your soul in His presence.

Even if it is just for a minute or an hour.

Whatever it takes.

You will be amazed at the difference it will make.

Unplug

You can’t know God’s will by looking from the world’s perspective.

You must unplug from it.

God’s will, his good, pleasing and perfect will for you isn’t difficult but it is very different.

Rest in him,

Renew your mind,

Refresh 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 Godʼs will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

How do you unplug from the world?

How do you connect with God most: the Word, worship music, a walk, nature or being with others?

What refreshes your heart?

Do whatever you need to do to draw back from the world and draw close to God today.

Unplug from the world and plug into the presence of God.

You will be amazed how much that fixes things.
