Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. -Romans 12:2
The mind and heart are inextricably linked no matter how much we might try to separate the two. The intellect has little context without the guidance of intuition, emotion, character – all within the domain of the heart. However, the heart without the thinking and reasoning capacity of the mind would lead us into places we would be ill prepared to go.
To harness the power of the mind and the purpose of the soul, we must develop habits of the heart which will bring us into balance with His plan. Spending time with God, allowing Him to renew and refresh you, being still long enough to absorb His unconditional love are just the beginning of training ourselves to tune into the best He has for us.
