Are you in sync? (No, not the boy band! ;-/

Revelation 21:5
“Behold, I make all things new.”


Was syncing my iphone to my computer today because I had to ‘reset’ all my settings. (Because of a problem with my camera not focusing properly.) Hubby said it would erase all of my original settings, so I needed to back them up.

Once I transferred all of the data from my phone onto the computer, it literally wiped out my wallpaper – my photo that is on my lock screen and home screen.

I was visualizing how when we ‘plug into God’ and download all the stuff going on inside of us – he can literally wipe out mental pictures of how we viewed things before. The ‘lock screen’ in our head. 

He can wipe the slate clean!

And we can replace the old pictures with newer and better ones.
Ones that are beneficial, not harmful.
Ones that contribute to my life, not subtract.
Pictures of healing – not injury.

And He helps us edit the pictures to make them brighter and not so dreary and dismal.

I’m thankful for a God who lets us transfer our old photos --
our old patterns of thinking, and allows us to trade them in to get a whole new view.  Pretty cool exchange! (Of course we sometimes battle trying to go back and retrieve the old snapshots...to dwell on the past!)

I know, I know…easier said than done.

But possible.

Misery IS an option…if we so choose.

What pictures would you like to wipe out of your memory? Consider downloading them to God and then press delete.
