In a world filled with challenges and uncertainties, it’s essential to cultivate a positive mindset that can help us navigate through life’s ups and downs.

Thankfully, the Bible has a great roadmap:

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Romans 12:2 NLT

According to Open the Bible, there are five steps to renewing your mind:

  1. Ask the Lord to guard and direct your mind.
  2. Recognize the source of self-focused and self-defeating thoughts.
  3. Replace self-focused thinking with a God-focused
  4. Rest in the truth that you are accepted in Jesus Christ.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 daily.
