Perceptions morph, a bit like the weather, all dependent on what the mind considers. This is good. Would there be many things worse than stubbornly sticking to a thought or decision when it should or could reasonably change?
But, often we’ll feel weak or guilty for changing our minds. Sometimes we know we shouldn’t buckle, but at other times a change of mind brings the peace of acceptance we’d perhaps long prayed for.
These latter times, when the prayer was for our minds to be changed by the will of God, are true blessings; for it is God that has turned our thinking, miraculously it seems.
Suddenly we are ready (finally) for the next thing.
We have the freedom to change our minds. It is our life after all. Nobody else has charge over what we think or decide. All that is left is to seek wisdom: find God’s will.
