21 Days of Dedication

21 Days of Dedication

Day #12

Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

When the issues and challenges of daily life get you down. When life seems to be throwing curveballs. If it appears that all around you have lost their minds. Where do you turn? To whom do you call? What is the answer when all is disintegrating and the focus is blurred?

In our 21 Days of Dedication we are learning and growing together as a church family. So we must stay connected to those around us who are most certainly in the same boat. Where are we focusing our love and affection? Are they centered on Heavenly things? Are they overshadowed by things of earth? I aim to help all of us to return to the thing that matters most… Gods plan for us.

The disappointments of life can cause us to turn and become distracted with the woes and hurts. But we must learn that Gods plan will get us out of this present world into the Heaven to come. Love the things of God. Long for the promises of His Word. Allow yourself to melt into the presence of His Spirit. Get away from the junk and the unkindness of this present life.

Why not write today in your journal a little bit about where you are heading in the sweet by and by… Take time to focus on the “righteousness” of Gods Word and see the things of this earth growing dim. God is speaking… are you listening? He is leading… are you following? Let your love be all about Him and less about what is around you.
