Perception is Not the Same as Truth

A Change of Mind. Day one...

“How did you feel about …?” Have you ever asked that question of anybody? Of course you have. You have, I have, we all have. Maybe you were comforting a friend after a death, an accident, an illness, a business failure, or some family drama. Or maybe you were just talking to somebody with an interesting story and wanted to know, “How did that make you feel?”

Controlling Destructive Emotions

A Change of Mind. Day two...

In reading about some of the famous crimes of passion, one incident really grabbed my attention. The two men involved, who should have been quite levelheaded, showed an incredible lack of judgment. One was an attorney and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. The other was U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who was the son of a lawyer and the nephew of the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. I would have assumed that men of such stature had enough brain‐power to control their emotions without bloodshed, but such was not the case.

Not All Emotions Are Necessary

A Change of Mind. Day four...

I don't like being around a drama king or queen. To me it's like having to walk through an emotional minefield. And emotions should never be given that kind of preferential treatment. When emotions rule a life they ruin a life.

Connecting Thoughts and Emotions

A Change of Mind. Day five...

My favorite dessert is vanilla ice cream made with the Melin family recipe. This cooked‐custard recipe freezes into an ice cream unequalled by anything else I've ever tasted. Vanilla, just plain old‐fashioned vanilla in a bowl with no toppings—a little bit of heaven on earth.

A Renewed Mind Has Access to the Things of God

A Change of Mind. Day six...

“The young lady's shoulders are heaving with hysteria as the villains approach. The hero is doing everything he can think of to calm her panic and protect their hiding place. Finally, as he realizes that they are in mortal danger from her out‐of‐control emotions, he reluctantly slaps her across the face with the back of his hand—harsh but effective. Startled, she suddenly comes to her senses and regains her composure—just as the footsteps of the bad guys come within earshot.”

God with Us

A Change of Mind. Day nine...

What if God just flew out of Heaven and landed on earth in His man costume? What if He then just walked around doing God things and finally ended the whole show by pretending to be in pain on a cross. (He was, after all, God. He could fake the whole thing and we wouldn't know the difference.)

Consider

A Change of Mind. Day ten...

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him? (Psalm 8:3–4 NKJV)
