Intentionally Blank

This if often a dangerous place to be…

2014-11-24 09.17.40A blank mind can easily be filled with something, anything, and the ending result could be worse than some former state.

It’s a clean slate, populate it with what you choose – and this is often what we think about a child having an empty mind and is filled up with what their environment exists of.

Label the learning. Paint the picture.

Have you ever taken on new responsibilities, or a new job, and one of the first things suggested to you is to forget all you ever thought you knew about some subject – they were going to teach you what you “should” know.

Clear the slate. Populate it with “their” way of doing things.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could start life off with a clean slate every so often? All of our bad habits, wrong choices, and perhaps even a better prepared understanding of future options!

I love the way David pens his thoughts in his didactic, or instructive, psalms.

“A David psalm. Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be– you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean. Count yourself lucky– GOD holds nothing against you and you’re holding nothing back from him.” (Psalms 32:1-2 MSG)

You get a fresh start! Your slate’s wiped clean! Hallelujah!!

I would like to write the next few days about what’s important to fill your mind with… Could we not have a fresh start that begins today? Sure!

If you have some thoughts about a fresh start that you would like to have, why don’t you let me know. Maybe it’s something to add to the stew pot!
