Mind Over (earthly) Matters

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8 (ESV)


Life is not always kind, or even “fair”.  When external stress and pressures build up, it can be oh-so-tempting to  sink into an pattern of pessimistic thinking that only serves to pull us farther into a pit of depression.

It is true that some earthly situations are not easily resolved.  And others may never be exactly “right”, according to our own estimation.  But that does not mean there is no hope of a better future for the Christian…if not here, then when we enter eternity, for sure.

We can always choose for our thoughts to dwell in either our temporary sorrows or on the promise of a blessed forever home in God’s presence.

Good to know.

 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

Revelation 21:3-5 (NKJV)

In Pursuit of Happiness

Matthew 6:31-34 (ESV)

31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
This passage is what came to mind when I saw the quote…then realized that whoever shared the meme on FB had the same thought

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
