I often [regularly, repeatedly, often] times forget that Philippians 3:20 is true:
But our citizenship is in heaven.
I get incredibly caught up in the here and now.
I forget that eternal, significant things are at stake.
I shouldn’t be nesting here.
One thing I am trying this week is writing out every verse that can keep my mind focused on what is true–instead of drifting off into “what ifs” and worrys and anxiety. <— this is my mega default by the way. I must replace my crazy thoughts with lasting thoughts.
This morning I went through my Bible and wrote out many of the underlined and starred verses in my Bible–ones that encourage me to keep fighting the good fight of faith. [1 Timothy 6:12] This way when I have a weary moment or a worry moment this week I can flip open my journal and they are all right there. It’s amazing how filling our minds with truth can make all the difference in our mind set. Will you practice renewing your mind with His word with me this week?
