So, today I did took a bold step….mind you…you might think it is very bold and that is okay. I may need to take steps you have already taken and vice versa. Would you like to know what I took back today?
I TOOK BACK MY FREEZER!
Yes indeed and in doing so, I cleared out meat from 2010…yes…that’s some old food I’d say. You know, when I was a kid, I just assumed we kept food for years and years. I grew up never knowing about an expiration date on items! LOL! So, if it was in the freezer, we just ate it! Also, I grew up with parents who shopped at a military base once a month at the commissary. Guess what? That meant that we got a whole bunch of food at one time to last us for an entire month. We purchased frozen foods, canned items, dried goods, etc. Back when I was a kid, we ate very little fresh vegetables unless we grew them ourselves.
Interestingly, I realized today as I threw out food that was truly no longer tasty, that my mind needed to change in how I shop. You see, I looked at some of the items that were expired and saw clearly that I would purchase something and then not use it…..WHY did I purchase it….why so …..I would have it….when I needed it! YIKES! I waited up to 4 years to use an item of frozen green beans and meat. Obviously, my mind got a little distorted in the freezer.
So, today I decided it was time to take it back! My friend Tammy drove in from Dallas today and she helped me as I took back my freezer! I have a few other places in my house I’ll be taking back as well but in the mean time, I’m happy about today’s accomplishment…its one more step toward taking back my kitchen and my house! So, what is your goal? Do you have anything coming up in your mind? Write it down!
I learned something today as I confronted my need to have food in the freezer – that I’m shopping like my parents shopped and guess why they shopped at the commissary? They shopped at the commissary yes because Dad had been in the Navy but do you know why else they shopped in bulk? They shopped bulk because of how THEY had been raised…which was during the Great Depression!
Oh my! It dawned on me today that my shopping habits are partially from a poverty mindset! There is no day like today to move forward from an old way of thinking into a new way of thinking. I’m not getting any younger! As a matter of fact, I talk about getting older here!
Therefore, today is MY NEW DAY IN MY OWN MIND!!
Scriptures read in Romans 12 that we are not to be conformed to the image of the world but we should be transformed (transfigured) by the renewing (the renovation) of our minds… In other words, if I’ll renew my mind, God will supernaturally transfigure me to be more like Him! There is a practical work of renovating the mind and there is a supernatural work too!
So, what is it you need to take back? I’m exchanging my poverty for a mindset of plenty! What about you my friend?
Where do you need to start?
