Shift your focus!

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!
