Use your righteous mind…

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthymeditate on these things.
Philippians 4:8(NKJV)


Today I had a breakthrough. It came at a cost (they always do). I thought I was doing my very best to be thoughtful, considerate, open. Or so I thought. The reality was that I was stuck in my own head, a little self-righteous (not on purpose), long-suffering, mildly but patiently miserable, and apparently spreading it all around. I thought I was doing my very best.

it’s about connecting to the God in you,
to get right with your righteous mind-

letting this mind that’s in Christ Jesus BE IN YOU.

Instead of trusting my instincts, instead of praying about it, and then quietly waiting for direction (see Mommy, I am listening), I cast myself as martyr and promptly made everybody miserable. Matthew Henry wisely said, “There is power enough in God to help the weakest, and grace enough to help the unworthiest of all that trust in Him.Instead of trusting my instincts, instead of praying and then quietly waiting for direction, I thought I knew what I was doing, I was relying upon my own supposed wisdom, and wrecking everything I came across. But today I had a breakthrough.

Breaking through, for me at least, never comes without pain and some tears. But I have come to love my brokenness. So, when my breakthrough came today, it washed over me like relief. Imagine the last time you thought, you knew you were doing it right, and big only to discover you had it all wrong? What did that feel like for you?

Once my clarity came, I had my confirmation. Walking the dog, Donald Lawrence sang my breakthrough.

If ye then be risen risen, risen in Christ in Christ
(Focus)
Set your affections _ on the things of the kingdom [repeats]
If ye be risen, risen -risen in Christ in Christ
Set your affections, affections, on the things of the kingdom

Whatsoever things are true?
Whatsoever things are honest?
Whatsoever  things are just?
Whatsoever  things are pure?
Whatsoever  lovely?
What;s of good report?
Of the renewing of your mind
Your righteous mind
Don't you think it's time?
To reconnect with your righteous mind
Your righteous mind
See your righteous mind is a faith mind
 Your righteous mind is a miracle mind
Jesus came and He did it
Your righteous mind
Time for you to get with it
Your righteous mind
Don't you think it's time?
Let this mind that's in Christ Jesus
Be in you...

Here is what I learned-no matter how surrendered you are, no matter how deeply you try to hide yourself in Him, no matter what you’ve done, or learned, or accomplished, every day, every moment, it’s about connecting to the God in you, to get right with your righteous mind-letting this mind that’s in Christ Jesus BE IN YOU.

Lord, I’m sorry. I thought before I acted. I didn’t pray enough. I wasn’t quiet enough, and I learned the lesson. And thank you, Donald Lawrence, for giving me the soundtrack. I’m back, or at least I’m on my way. And then (But God),

And then, my sisterfriend wrote the encouragement which I’ll be sharing, in my first guest post ever, soon, so stay tuned.

What was the last thing you learned when you thought you were doing everything right?  Please tell me in the comments…But for now, I’m dancing to Your Righteous Mind
