Set Your Heart…

I’ve been a tad preoccupied this week. I’m an overthinker and whenever I have an issue, it has a tendency to go into instant replay and it continues to play until I feel that the issue has been resolved. So, it has been difficult this week to focus on the still quiet voice of the Holy Spirit. But although, I wasn’t listening with intent, He found a way to say to me “Set your heart on things above!” I began to see that scripture in various places. So even when we are not listening the Holy Spirit, He is always talking… trying to get our attention. He is trying diligently to convince us that we just need to let Him handle it and trust me, He is capable of doing a much better job than we ever could.

It is so very easy to get distracted with life situations and circumstances that dominate our thoughts or worst yet, we get sucked into Yahoo News or the deep dark hole of YouTube. We have to be constantly reminded to “Set our hearts on things above”!

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

Colossians 3:1-2

Now before I leave you today, I’d like you to think about those that may need a touch… Unfortunately, we may not be able to touch physically, but a simple phone call or text will go a long way. It may be that person that pops into your head that you haven’t spoken to for a while or it may even be that person that gets on that last nerve and remember, this doesn’t just apply to just your sister girls, but your brothers to…

Reach out and touch
Somebody’s hand
Make this world a better place
If you can

(Just try)
Take a little time out of your busy day
To give encouragement
To someone who’s lost the way

– AND –

Always take a quiet moment to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying…
