Change My Heart, Change My Mind

November 24, 2009

A friend told me this story about her 2-1/2 year-old granddaughter.

The little girl often gets in trouble at home for fighting with her sister and her parents have been trying to teach her that she needs to change her heart and change her mind when she feels like being naughty. Recently she was playing at a friend’s house when something happened and with intensity she started saying, “Change my heart, change my mind. Time for time out. Change my heart, change my mind, be like Jesus.” She then turned to her friend and asked where the timeout was because she needed to go to timeout so she could change her heart and change her mind.

Changing our heart and mind is what will make the difference, but we can’t do it on our own. We need Jesus to change us to be like him. This little girl is grasping some concepts that few adults know about and understand. How about you, are you ready to put yourself into timeout so you have time and space for your heart and mind to be changed?
