I learned to “catch my mind” recently. I would ask myself “What am I thinking now?”, especially when I am facing a challenge or confrontation. I would ask myself “Why do I have that feeling?” Then, I would hold back to think about my situation instead of reacting right away. I would consider the reason for the actions or reactions of the people that I am talking to. This pause gives me time to put the truth from the Bible in front of me before I react, which helps to take away the negative feelings. My response would be totally different from before. I feel happier than before because I can change my habit. The people around me also feel better. This has helped me a lot!
I can improve no matter what stage I am in. I am still improving as long as I live in God’s family.
