The C Word! Not What You Think.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

When you hear people mention the dreaded 'C' word one thing comes to mind. I am here to tell you there are positive 'C' words too. How about character, courage, clown, caring,cheerful,compassion, creative, courteous, calm,confident, Christ, comical, and  centered. Every 'C' word does not have to remind you of the big bad one, you know Cancer. 

Guess who it is that tries to get you to think of worse case scenarios? It is not God. It is the evil one, Satan. Yes he is alive and well and roaming around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may destroy it says in scripture, and his speciality is working on us through fear. Your mind has to be consciously set on 'things above' so you are not tempted to dwell in the valley of the shadow of death. 

Yes bad stuff does happen but it does not have to define who you are. You are a child of the King. He uses you in all sorts of ways and through all sorts of trials. If your heart is prepared to meet Jesus then there really is nothing to fear. If you have not asked Jesus to be Lord of your life why not ask Him in right now to live in you.

PRAYER: I know Lord one day my life here on this earth will be no more. I look forward to a glorious reunion in heaven. When I start to fear death help me remember how glorious things are that await me beyond this temporary home. In Jesus' name. Amen.
