Hey guys, happy Thursday I hope everyone is having a fantastic day I know for a lot of us in school it has been finals week. And I pray that you have peace while taking these tests. that is definitely something I struggle with when it comes to test. I just pray for God to give you strength to stay calm. Because he gave me the strength to stay calm during my test. However, today we’re not gonna be talking about anxiety and said we’re gonna be talking about keeping our focus on God.
So we are going to start with Colossians 3:2
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
I really just read that last night a couple times trying to figure out what this means in my life. Because I would think that I am not a person who is obsessed with objects. So I’m trying to figure out how this applies to me. In my everyday life. I was thinking that there are a bunch of different things so for one I thought how he could relate to people in
Objects -> and always just wanting more. But I like it said here we should set a reminder on things above, not on earthly things. And objects are very earthly and they can take away from God.
Time -> i’ll be honest with you, I just want to fast forward a couple years in the future when I get married and get to start my own family. But I’m not even promise that time is what I realized last night and I just need to be thankful for every day that I get right now.
This thing is something a lot of young adults struggle with. Its pleasure-> What I mean by this is that a lot of people aren’t waiting for marriage and God made that whole spectrum of stuff for marriage and for it to be good and a lot of us rush that for ourself and it only harms us.
My final point for today.
And I’ll just talk about myself is I really struggle with just having really bad tunnel vision. And only wanting to be in the future not what’s happening right now. But what I came to realize last night is that because of me wanting the future I’m missing out on things right now. And I am unable to see the good right now because all I want is the future. Which caused me to take initiative in my life about this. I deleted Pinterest because for me Pinterest is where I spend a lot of my time making my boards for my future house or my future wedding and stuff like that. And that’s really not what I should be focusing on I should be focusing on what’s going on in my life right now.
I challenge you this week to set your mind on things above, non-earthly things. Because it really takes away from my God has in store for you and I really realize that last night.
Thanks for popping in,
