Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Maureen Pratt Author PicThese days, I have often found the following Scripture verse coming to mind:

“Do not conformyourself to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.”  Romans 12: 2

It’s an excellent reading to remember at any time of year, but especially during Lent, when we take extra care to pray, meditate, and disengage our lives from at least some of the distractions swirling about us.

But what I really focus on is the phrase “renewal of your mind,” and dicerning “what is good.” It’s really hard to think of the right path if you’re obsessed with the wrong one. And it’s nearly impossible to hear the Holy Spirit’s whisper if our ears, physical and spiritual, are filled with destructive noise.

As Lent approaches, think of the good that you can bring into your life and heart. Focus on it having an excellent result – and excellent outlook – in the days and months to come. I sure will!

Blessings,

Maureen
