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
There are things that can make a person's mind be altered in ways not from God. Examples would be alcohol and drugs. You hear of people who can't relax or want to have fun so they drink. Maybe there are those with problems they feel a magic drug or alcohol will help cure. Deaths have occurred from mixing drugs and alcohol.The best and most preferred way to 'alter your mind' is not with substances mentioned above but from reading God's word. The Bible helps transform your thoughts and help you acquire peace and joy instead of fear and unhappiness. It is also your guidebook through life to keep you on the right path.When you feel upset, fearful, angry, bitter, forgotten, abused, unloved pick up the Bible, for in it you will find rest for your weary soul. Give it a try.PRAYER: Lord I know that only through you are problems solved not by drinking or taking drugs. I pray for those caught in that trap, often one of fear and unhappiness. I need you every hour. In Jesus' name. Amen.
