Set Your Mind

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Different things in life can make you anxious. Recently a friend of mine had a scary medical report and called for prayer. These type things can really get you rattled. Hearing the dreaded possible C word can send anyone into a tizzy. Finding out you need surgery for a condition you were unaware you had. Go ahead and add to the list. 

Our life here is so temporary. We want to be able to leave this Earth free of issues, pain, trials, and problems but that is likely not going to be the case. Stuff happens. It is how you deal with it that matters. James 1:3 talks about the 'testing' of your faith leading to endurance. It is through these trials and tests that we can either learn and grow stronger or totally end up a defeated mess.

So to set your mind you just tell yourself you are not going to allow the enemy to make you fearful or worse yet, mad at God. Yes when things don't go perfectly,  many run from God which is quite sad. This is the time they need Him most. Stay strong and let God see you through.

PRAYER: Lord God I am sorry for times I have not trusted you in the hard times of life and turned my back on you. Help me realize every trial is a chance to grow. I choose to focus on the Cross. In Jesus' name. Amen.
