You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right-hand side of God. Keep your minds fixed on things there, not on things here on earth.
Colossians 3:1-2 GNB
I realize when I am not in this mindset, I am in trouble. The more I walk this journey, the more I realize that the earth is a stepping stone to something so much greater. I love my life, don’t get me wrong, however, I know that I can’t take anything with me to the grave. I hope to see people in Heaven, not have a bunch of materialistic things that don’t really matter anyways. I’d rather spend time serving at church and being with family, than worrying about what tomorrow will bring. I no longer have to worry because God provides so much peace. His love is so overwhelming it often brings me to tears. When I’m worn out & weary I am often trying to do things in my own strength, in my own time, and I am stuck in the here & now. He always gently shifts my focus back on his face & I am at peace.
I need to work on being content through every circumstance, the bad, the good, the in-between. I need to be still & know he is God! Let God be God!
I often have to ask myself, “Where are your eyes set?” “What truly matters?”
Is there something Holy Spirit has convicted you of lately? Feel free to share!
