‘Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.’ (Colossians 3:2 HCSB)
We can not stop our longing for for a deeper experience with God. It is with us always. A quest from which no one can hide. Even the emptiest and coldest heart longs for relationship with Christ. The pull on you and me – the pull by God Almighty is far more potent than
any dire need,
and, that is why the Most High has led you here now, to be reminded.
We have a serious task ahead: to face challenges at odds with
We will face trials.
We will be falsely accused.
We will need walk-away strength.
And, stand your ground courage.
(My sis-in-law doesn’t sugar-coat what I need to hear. She gives me a “suck it up Buttercup” pep talk pretty often. Thank you, Pen).
DearOne, answering the call to follow in the footsteps Jesus Christ requires that we are sometimes reduced. to. ashes.
Once that happens, the gains will yield growth:
Releasing old wounds.
Letting go of grudges.
Replacing hurt places with forgiveness.
Rising out of grief into new life with The Most High.
When your soul is called out, drive erupts that will will take charge of your life.
Set your mind there.
